I have used this clinic for 18 years and the service here is top notch. The CMA was so friendly and efficient. Dr. Holland Barkis is by far the best doctor I have ever visited. She puts me at ease and always treats me with courtesy and respect. She is a wonderful doctor and thoroughly addressed all of my questions and concerns. She provides a wealth of information and I feel that she cares about my health and helps me takes positive steps to live my best life as I get older.

Dr Holland-Barkis has been my doctor since about 1990. Even though I was disabled and forced to move back to hometown I will NOT choose a new doctor. My elderly parents have to take me to see her. She is that GOOD!!!!

Provider worked my son in at 4:40 for a laceration. most providers would have sent us to the ED. Dr Holland-Barkis is the most compassionate and professional provider and I would highly recommend her to any of my friends and family.
