I saw Dr. Steve Patten, who has had top notch training and is as smart as he can be. He really listened to me. He did a much more thorough exam than the average. He was very thoughtful about my illness,and did all he could to help me get better. Just saw him this morning, and starting to feel improved this afternoon from the 2 shots they gave me.

My appointment time was around 9:00, they didn't call me back for more than half an hour. However, I was the first and only person in the office. When I told them i was upset about the wait, they did notapologize and said that they don't normally take patients before 9:30 (my times may be off by half an hour). Why have appointments prior to when you will actually have someone look at you. I was in the office before the doctor even arrived and I was on time for my appointment. The doctor didn't show up until after my appointment time was supposed to have occurred. When I asked for a flu test, the doctor told me that you all did not provide that service. However, the night before in the same exact office, my wife was given a flu test. When I told the doctor he was lying (including telling him about my wife the prior evening), he got visibly upset and his bedside manner was even worse than before. I've used you all in the past, however, I will never go to this location again, and honestly if I did use you and had the same doctor walk in, I would walk out. Please don't offer appointments that you all have no intention on keeping and please don't have your doctors lie to the patients.

He was very professional and actually took time to give me advice on how to get healthier and stay healthy. He didn’t just diagnose me, give me medicine, and leave like many other urgent facilities. I would HIGHLY recommend going hereand you can even book your appointment and fill out all paperwork beforehand.

I absolutely had a 5 star experience. The staff and dr were wonderful. Staff was so courteous and helpful. And Dr Ferrara was very sweet. He Listened to my symptoms then did an exam. I didn’t feel as though he wasrushing which is nice in urgent care. Even with an appt I waited about 45 mins but considering it’s flu season I was satisfied with that time. I will definitely go back the next time I’m in need of urgent care.

Unfortunately this is the second time I have signed up to see one particular doctor on zocdoc and they have put me with another much younger and less experience doctor. It feels like a bait and switch.

I was disappointed that I had made an appointment for 2pm but had to wait over an hour to see the doctor. He was a great doctor though so I’m glad I waited. His name was Dr. Webb.

Not bad considering we needed an emergency appointment in the middle of a tropical storm. This is probably why he was backed up and it took about an hour or so from the time of the appointment to the one wewere seen. The rest was great. Patient was well cared for and got the necessary prescriptions. Would try again under normal circumstances.

It's an urgent care facility, so I didn't see Dr. Anthony Ferrara in particular. The facility was very clean and professional, and they have convenient hours. The doctor I did see was nice enough, explained things okay—service was satisfactory.Wait seemed longer than usual, but probably because the nature of this facility. There was also a practicing intern who diagnosed me under the doctor's supervision. They asked permission beforehand, but it made the visit awkward.
