The doctor herself is okay, but I had quite a few issues with the office. This office is actually an urgent care, so I wouldn’t recommend coming here for a regular check up because they will nickel and dime you. Iwas billed a high amount for a vaccination, because while the injection itself was covered, the office billed me for the office visit. I was there less than 5 minutes and didn’t even see a doctor. Second, during my pap smear they had a student doctor watching without asking my permission. I should have said something but I was already uncomfortable. So again, Dr. Cabugason was fine, but I wouldn’t recommend this office.

I'd neglected my annual checkups for a few years, so I decided to give Innovative Express a try. It was nice to be able to fill out forms online, ahead of my visit. When I arrived, I was even called backa little early! The intake nurse seemed a bit rushed – she asked for my height and weight instead of measuring them. Dr. Cabugason came in, in no time, and took care in asking me my concerns and addressing each of them as we talked. Finally, the woman who drew blood was really outstanding! Her lighthearted manner really put me at ease, and the poke was more or less painless. I'll come back next year.

For my general physical, she gave me 15 minutes to review my health. Since this was my first visit, I feel like I should have gotten much more time! She didn’t even take my height/weight which I think is pretty standard.I also had a cold when I visited, but she said that we couldn’t discuss it or I would be charged with a sick visit... would not recommend if you’re looking for a doctor to help you regain your health!

Dr. Cabugason is great! I really loved my integrative medicine group in the burbs and was scared I wouldn’t be able to find a doctor & practice in the city that would compare... love the holistic approach here, as someone withseveral medical conditions (including TBI, gut/autoimmune issues, and PTSD) it’s a relief to have such a knowledgeable and helpful doctor at such a cool & accessible practice! Two thumbs way way up.

I came in to have my back checked out 4 weeks after falling down icy stairs, as I still had some pain when twisting. She determined this was due to muscle tightness, not spinal injury, and printed me out stretches sherecommended I do. As always, I came with my list of 15 other questions and she was more than helpful in answering them all. I was seen exactly at my appointment time, no waiting. Parking easily available.

Parking was no problem, receptionist was very friendly and helpful. Very clean inside throughout. I had a 9:15 appt, and was called in at exactly 9:15. Nurse was also super friendly, personable and professional. Short wait to see Dr. Cabugason,also all of the above. She answered all of my questions thoroughly and asked me details so that she could provide the best response. Excellent visit, and highly recommended facility and staff.. thank you!

Doctor failed to introduce herself when first coming in the room which seemed really dismissive having never met her prior. She left the room to get a document from the printer which took her close to five minutes all the whileI heard her small talking with another nurse. Seemed rather unprofessional.

The facility was clean, nicely decorated and the staff was friendly. I waited about 10minutes and my vitals were taken. Less than 5 minutes later the doctor came in. I didn't feel rushed and she genuinely listened to my concerns. Ireceived a blood draw and it was quick/painless as well as a flu shot. Would highly recommend!

Easy and quick! Thought I might need a few appointments to take care of everything (e.g., I'm used to having my physical and bloodwork done on separate days), but was able to do it within about 25 minutes in 1 day.

Dr. Cabugason spent enough time with me to get to a quick diagnosis and didn't order any unnecessary testing that would have been a waste of time and money. She was pleasant to speak with and got me on my way.The paperwork was already completed by zocdoc so it was one of the quickest trips to the doc i've ever had! Thanks.

she was very nice and took care of everything. I had lots of questions pertaining to women's health and she did a great job - better than the advice of any other doctor I've had :) Also her reception staff noticedsomething was weird about my insurance and went out of their way to contact them and figure out that there had been a faxing error and that was really nice of them, I probably would've never caught that and would've been waiting forever to hear back.
