Nice facilities, no waiting. I think I've finally found a doctor that will meet my healthcare needs (1) he was very thorough and provided explanations (2) does not push pills - right up my alley as i wouldn't take them allanyway (3) believes heartily in holistic efforts and most importantly did not just pat me on the back.."all's OK". He won't know anything until the labs have come back. and he's willing to let results drive my care...love that approach. This was a very good start and i hope it remains so. Thanks Zocdoc!!

Dr Musher has very excellent bedside manners and makes you feel at ease immediately. This was my first encounter with Doctor Musher but it felt like I had been his patient for a long time. I didn't feel rushed and Ifelt like he had a genuine interest in knowing me as a person more than as a patient. I highly recommend Dr Musher to any person looking for a caring and compassionate primary care physician.

Dr. Musher and the Office Assistant were exceptionally professional, kind, and engaging. I felt very relaxed and not stressed, as I had felt with my previous primary care physician. Dr. Musher was thorough in his explanations and allowed me the opportunity to ask questions.

It was a pleasure to meet Anne, the nurse, and Dr. Musher. The office was very neat and offered an array of informational pamphlets. Anne took my weight and I was immediately shown to a room. Dr. Musher soon after camein to check blood pressure, heart rate, etc. He returned later after finishing up with another patient to thoroughly complete my physical. At the end, he shared his background as well as the office's holistic approach to health. I was not aware that Dr. Musher was an enthusiastic advocate for healthy preventative choices. Often times I think of doctors as professionals you visit to treat an illness. I'm very grateful to know I can consult Dr. Musher for healthier eating, improved exercise habits, and anti-aging supplements as I near the big 3-0. Excited to age gracefully!

Best doctor I have ever seen. I am generally afraid of doctors. Dr. Musher put me at ease immediately and spent lots of time explaining his practice and philosophy with me. I am so relieved to finally find a primary carephysician that I can trust. I highly recommend Dr. Musher.

Doctor Musher is very thorough and was able to diagnose my illness through a complete blood panel. He prescribed me a very basic over-the-counter probiotic supplement that has really helped my digestive issues. I really appreciate his consideration of alternative and natural medicines.

Dr. Musher was amicable, professional, and to the point. This is a no-nonsense holistic practice. He gave practical advice on lifestyle and taking care of myself, without a bunch of spiritual mumbo-jumbo and without cynically resorting toprescriptions. The wait was a little long but he was dealing with a patient emergency so that's perfectly forgivable. I'll be sticking with Dr. Musher for the foreseeable future.

I got the physical I needed, but didn't really feel like I was wanted in the office. The doctor's manner is brief and uncaring. He barely made eye contact. The same is true of the office staff. I felt a bitlike I was herded from room to room, and that the results of my physical were private information to be kept from me.

I liked Dr Musher, however he is moving towards congierge medical service for his patients, which sounds interesting. But it might change weather someone wants to sign on with him or not, as there are monthly fees involved on top of your insurance.

My father is an M.D. Who came into his specialty over 50 years ago, when the profession was as much an art as a science. Dr. Musher's knowledge and ability to connect (listen and problem-solve) reminds me of that ethos
