This provider was able to get me in the same day at the end of the day which was great, but I ended up waiting for over 45 minutes to be seen. I just wish I had known there would be a chance I would be waiting in the exam room for that long.

Dr. Kwak is a very dedicated physician as well as an always caring, compassionate, and considerate professional. I appreciate her holistic approach and that she is always willing to dig deeper and share additional information on any of my concerns. This goes for her nurse ... too who deserves kudos for recently completing her nursing degree. They are a great team.
