I had the pleasure of being cared for by Mr. Uremovich, PA-C who was kind, compassionate, and extremely professional and competent. He gave excellent explanations to my questions, and was very skilled at performing an ENT exam utilizing specialequipment. He scheduled the appropriate studies to diagnose and manage my narrow airway and sleep apnea, and arranged a follow-up visit with Dr. Scotch once the sleep study results would be available. I left office feeling that I had been blessed to have found such a caring and competent team of dedicated health care providers. I highly recommend this practice, and feel the same gratitude for everyone single individual that I met in the office.

This doctor was worth the wait! Before he came into my room, I overheard him talking to the PA and said something along the lines of, "Alright, let's see how we can help her." I feel like that is not theattitude of the average doctor (unfortunately) and both he and his PA were great at explaining what was going on. The wait was almost an hour and the waiting room was so cold they had a slide on the TV of a penguin saying if it's too cold to ask for blanket... Overall, so worth the wait and I can't wait to start treatment and get better!
