She is very thorough. She checked for all possible injuries and double-checked to find my pain. She is a caring doctor. She was careful about the prescriptions she prescribed regarding my other prescriptions and my health issues. I wish she were a primary care physician. I'd highly recommend her!

They are amazing!..I was seen, little bit of a wait, and treated with kindness and efficiency. The receptionists were very friendly and easy to talk to. The nurse was chatty and puts you at ease. The doctor was just plain AWESOME! They knew right away what to do and explained treatment in plain English. These people ROCK! Thank you
