Very knowledgeable caring and always explains tests results in simple terms and what they mean and she makes recommendations. She has always been available when I need her or gets back to me asap. I could not ask for a more professional doctor. I feel extremely fortunate to have her as my primary care doctor.

Dr. A was very attentive to all my concerns. She actively listened and addressed all my concerns. She offered several options for my care and allowed me to participate in the final decision. The nurse was very helpful and the radiologist who took my x-rays made me feel very comfortable. He also walked me back to my patient room to ensure I didn't get lost. He also offered his assistance. I am usually apprehensive about seeing new medical staff but I felt cared about and very comfortable the entire visit. I also appreciated getting my results while I waited instead of having to wait and schedule another appointment to discuss my results. Great staff and network!
