Always a pleasure being with the staff at this site. Dr. Dewar is always a pleasant person to be around. Very understanding of his specialty.

March 02, 2017

Dr. Dewar was really friendly and easy to talk to and a good choice for a PCP. I noticed that when we has getting close to seeing the next patient, he tried to hurry conversation along. Not his fault since he had other patients, but it was noticable.

January 05, 2017

I had never had Dr. Dewar before and it was refreshing. He was prompt, professional, and concise. The advise he gave and medicine he prescribed all worked well.
