I was able to get into the office in a timely manner and he listened to everything. I said, I'm still having problems, but I just have to get used to it.

For the first time ever, I got an appointment to see the doctor the day after I called. It was WONDERFUL! I've usually had to wait at least a week. I asked questions of the doctor and he explained everything very patiently and I was happy with the results of the visit.

I really like my Dr and my daughter Dr here in this office. But since the move from the previous office. I feel the staff and nurse are very cold. It doesn't feel like before where they were more personable and friendly. Sometimes they have even been rude. I don't go often but when I do there's always some change that me as a patient is not informed about.

It is unfortunate that my pcp is closed to new patients. I have known my pcp for many years and is always attentive to what I tell him. I have to say that I am lucky enough to have a good provider who listens to his patients.

Always excellent service

Doctor didn't really seem to understand my condition and made me feel like it wasn't urgent even though I clearly stated I feel like blacking out while driving. He made it seemed like it was just a nerve thing and after a 30 second this he just called it a headache. I will be going else where next time.

This was my first visit and the office staff and nurses were courteous and friendly. The doctor sat down and talked to me and listened to what I had to say. He explained why he feels I should change a couple of my medications. Overall I was very impressed.
