Recent comments from patients

I have had nothing but good experience with the staff.

Everyone was equally impressive. This is a great facility.

Molly is my favorite. I always ask for her whether it’s just an exam or a procedure. She definitely deserves recognition.

Dr. Alpert is extremely knowledgeable and pleasant.

During the times I've spent, the staff was courteous to me and the waiting time was much faster than the other health care

Dr. Swan was very good! Thanks.
