Philosophy Of Care

All I want to say is that I needed immediate help and my primary wasn't in the office that day. I am beyond grateful that I got an appointment with Karen. She and the medical assistant were beyond caring, compassionate and understanding. I am eternally grateful for their help that day.

This provider was excellent and thought of something the ER doctors had not. She examined thoroughly, asked questions, listened and came up with her assessment of what might be the problem and she was correct!

Prior to coming in to the office, I visited ... immediate care and received different information that concerned me. Karen did an amazing job making me feel comfortable and explain to me what was going on. I was leaving for vacation and was getting very nervous with the information I received from the ... immediate care. Karen was wonderful and took the time to explain what was going on. Dr. ...is my primary who is also amazing. Overall, this office always provides excellent care!
