This was my first time here and I am a new patient that plans to come back! From the beginning to end I had a very pleasant experience. Saida was a super sweet medical student, Koya was very nice and attentivewhile doing my physical, the front desk staff (didn’t get names) were very swift and sweet, and last but not least Dr. Tomeh! He is the man! I was a little scared to inquire a male for my pcp but nonetheless he is the most caring, nice, and attentive Dr! I’m glad I found him and I’m even more happy to say I will continue to return.

I loved Dr Tomeh. He made me very comfortable for a new patient, didn't have me repeating information that I told him, was very to the point and I enjoyed that most because I was just there for an annualphysical and am relatively in good health. He told me what he recommended and what he didn't want to do unnecessarily and I was in and out. I printed off the paperwork before hand and that's strongly encouraged. It was several pages, but that's life. Overall, changing insurances was terrible but I didn't care for my old PCP anyway. But I thank my new job, my new insurance plan, and ZocDoc for introducing me to Dr. Tomeh!

I've been a patient of Dr. Tomeh for 11+ years and I have say I couldn't have made a better choice in finding the right Physician. He's always professional and willing to spend time explaining diagnoses and is never in arush. The office staff is always professional, courteous, willing to help and always explain tests that they are performing which I think is a portion of the overall experience. I have no plan to explore or finding another physician because I already have one of the best.

I haven't been to a doctor in years, and I am long overdue to receive a physical. Also, I'm having back problems. So, on my first visit, Dr. Tomeh asked me questions in regards to my history and my family's history.Also, he let me explain all of my physical issues. Not only did he listen intensively, he was very thorough and professional. He even took an x-ray to check on my back issue. And at the end of my visit, he explained everything thoroughly that I needed to know. And answered any questions that I had for him. Also, he referred me to other doctors for the things that was outside of his scope. It showed me that Dr. Tomeh cares. I will be going back to Dr. Tomeh for future visits.

I went in to see Dr. Tomeh for routine annual physical and care for my chronic conditions. The staff was friendly and he was pleasant and kind. He ordered a number of additional tests, that were not ordered by any ofthe physicians I have seen before for the annual physical. He also refilled my medications only for 90 days and wanted to back for a second visit, while previous physicians I have seen provided larger refills. I did return to see him 90 days as instructed and the staff came in to draw blood without any orders from him. I asked for a review of the orders, and they removed 3 out of the 5 blood draws, because they were done only 3 months ago. For this reason, I will not be returning to this practice.
