I have seen John at McFarland and on 2 occasions now and he is always amazing! I felt like he really listened and wanted to do what was best for me. I hope the next time I go I see him again!

John was great. He reviewed my symptoms and medical history. His explanations were clear and concise with no jargon. He outlined treatment options and helped me feel confident in the plan. I was encouraged to check with him and/or my regular physician if questions or problems arose.

John always makes me feel seen. He is patient, has a great sense of humor, and always clearly explains everything. He seems to really love his job and to care about the patient in front of him. I never get the sense that he is rushed or doesn't have time to listen. He is the reason I like to use Urgent Care if my regular doctor is not available.
