My provider and physician assistant are a great team and take the time to provide high quality care with patient centered thoughtfulness. I especially appreciate their willingness to check on me between office visits. I feel like a real whole person, not just a patient billing number. They engage me in the process and answer my questions with caring professionalism, concern and kindness. Can't ask for more.

He was great. Refered to me by his in house associate Dr. Semaan to consult on my initial diagnosis. This is field that he is very knowledgeable about to find the cause of this problem. He wants me to have a breathing test before I see him again, in a month for a follow up visit. He also increased my medication to help with my symptoms. since my increase I am feeling better and it's only been a day, but what a difference a day can make. I feel we are finally on the right track to solving this problem.
