My appointment was on 3/10 It was my first time meeting her since my doctor had retired. Dr. Hjalmarson, she understood my anxiety and took the time to listen to me and get to know me as a person. She did not push me into any procedures I did not feel comfortable with. I am pleased she was suggested by my PCP before he retired.

I had a great experience with Dr. Hjalmarson and her office! I had to find a doctor at the last minute -- I booked the day before on ZocDoc and was confirmed right away to see her the next morning (I was so relieved!). The office waiting area was pleasant - and after filling out some forms I was seen almost immediately. All of the staff in this office was very nice and helpful. Dr. H has a great 'bed side manner' and answered all of my questions. Definitely would recommend.
