Dr. Allison Achilefu was AMAZING. The moment I got to the parking lot I immediately called my mom and sister and told them THIS is the kind of primary care provider you want. the next day I called my aunt with the same message. she is thorough. when listens fully and she is a problem solver. she seems to care about connecting the dots between who you are, your hobbies, your occupation, your entire backstory to what ailment you are presenting with. she is fabulous.

My new Dr Is AWESOME ! Dr Achilefu is what I have been looking for and more. I had been with my wonderful Dr in CT for 30 years and had not found that level of care in any other practioner since that time. If I could rate her a "20" I definitely would. She made me comfortable, provided information on all of my conditions that truly helped me to understand her treatment plans. Unlike a prior local provider, Dr Achilefu put me totally at ease. She made me feel like I had known her for years. It showed also in a great BP reading. Dr Achilefu restored my confidence in the local medical profession.
