I was very pleased with my visit to Dr. Piesman. My wait was less than 15 minutes. The Receptionist and nurse were very professional and courteous. Dr. Piesman arrived within five minutes after the nurse finished taking my blood pressure and completing a medical questionnaire. I was impressed with Dr. Piesmen's recall of our last visit over a year ago referring to my appearance. The doctor showed great bedside manner and concern over my well being.
