I had a wonderful visit with Dr. Almeida. I have been struggling to find a primary care doctor since I moved to Indianapolis, and I'm so relieved to have ended up with Dr. Almeida. She doesn't rush you, she's incredibly empatheticand knowledgeable. I appreciated that she made it so clear that I was in charge of my own healthcare decisions, I felt empowered by that. Looking forward to going back!

This was my first time here but I’m definitely recommending to everyoneand coming back. I didn’t even have to go to Google after the appointment like I’ve had to with other docs!

Dr. Alameida was incredibly refreshing. I have had multiple doctors that I felt were never fully present, didn't listen to my opinion about what I knew about my body, and overall just didn't seem to care. Dr. Alameida is the exactopposite. She is present, creates a safe space for you to share your experience, and is extremely validating. There is obviously a care and connection that is unique to her. I have never felt so relieved after visiting a doctor. She doesn't rush through anything, she listens, and she provides thorough facts about al lot your options for treatment. I would recommend her to any loved one, and will from now on.
