Verified Patient Reviews
Very professional and compassionate.
It was okay. I felt like the doctor was in a hurry.
The visit overall was better than I thought it would turn out. I was late due to bridge opening, but they were completely understanding. I've received a warm welcome once arrived. The staff and Dr. Wood-Harper were friendly, fast, and efficient.
If every doctor was as personable as Dr. Wood-Harper, I would take care of myself better. Great personality and professional.
I was a little nervous to see a new doctor, but as soon as she said hello, I was put at ease. Not only did she approach my concern is such a calm manner that I also felt calm, she was very thorough and professional.
