Dr. Mares is an absolute amazing physician, I have been his patient for many years and have recommended multiple people to him. He treats you as if you were a person instead of just a number. I have never felt rushed, he has always been very personable and he makes it a point to always go above and beyond. I will continue to recommend patients to his practice. Thank you Dr. Mares for being the best!
