great doc and staff

I cant say enough good about Dr. "A" (for Awesome). Kind and caring. He focused on me and was not distracted. I am completely satisfied that he heard me and understands my condition. When I left I felt relief that I was in good hands and would soon be back to my old self. This doc is one in a million.

fantastic care

The only down side of the appointment was that it took much longer than I thought it would. It took 1 hour and 45 minutes from the time of my appointment until the time I was done. The dr was great and so where the nurse and PA.
