I told her I did not have a job and she was trying to promote oils to me. I didn’t buyany oils and I felt. Awkwardly pressured. The girl at the front was nice but she is screaming medications to the doctor (that is in a room with another patient) that I’m on I was embarrassed. Luckily no one was in the waiting room but there was another patient in the room with the doctor, I’m sure if the doctor heard then so did the patient. I won’t be going back.

The wait was way too long. Patients came in after me and we’re seen before me, she claimed they were “sick”but they definitely were not. She tried way too hard to sell me products as opposed to anything else.

The mission of this practice is to keep all of you healthy. To focus on wellness and prevention.

Melissa was wonderful. Very interested in taking all of my history. She was thorough and listened to me without rushing me at all. The office was very, very clean and the staff was great. I found my new family doctor, andI look forward to having her as my family practitioner for many years to come.
