Verified Patient Reviews
Great visit. Professional and thorough. Staff was friendly and mass me feel comfortable.
Great bed side manner, very professional!
Waited over an hour and twenty minutes to see him, and when he finally came in I felt like the whole thing was so rushed... He barely looked at me, didn't ask me any questions, wrote some medications down and sent me along. I had to keep stopping him to ask questions and state my concerns. I left not really knowing how much of which medicines to take, and when to take them, since it was all verbal and nothing was written down. Overall pretty disappointed. Have another appointment next month.
The doctor was excellent and so was the staff! he knew very much what he was taking about and the staff was so kind and helpful as well.
This was my first visit & I was pleased. Very professional staff. I will require several followup visits can make a better assessment at that.
Very efficient and was happy with the treatment.
Disorganised, overbooked and unprofessional.

Dr. Apisarnthanarax is a knowledgable doctor whom I would have no issue referring him to other potential patients/friends/family
I was looking for medical help but felt like the products at the front were being pushed instead.
Very Professional. Friendly. Shook my hand. Called me by my name. Took time to ask me about any concerns I had. Was familiar with my file. Knew why I had come to him. Smiled like he was happy to be my doctor. I will definitely continue to use him and will recommend him to my family and friends.
There was no problem with the Dr. His office staff never phoned in my prescription to the pharmacy !!! No problem in taking my money , but didn't care about his ordered prescription .
He is amazing. The medication he prescribed me worked like a charm and this is after having been to the ER 3 times and prescribed various medications and also the years of dermatology appts. with other doctors.
I was very pleased with the Doctor and staff. He explained every thing in a way I understood.
I thought it was a waste of time and money. I left his office with no resolution. I will never go back to this office.

great staff very nice and friendly. Dr.A was very nice and spoke in a clear soothing tone that made it very easy in the room.
Dr Joe is a very nice doctor. He took his time with Maria, and gave us all sorts of samples and coupons for Maria's medicines. Thanks Dr Joe, we truly wish every doctor made their patients feel important as you do!
The visit was fast. I was able to ask my questions, yet I felt rushed. There was not much explaination of what the diagnosis was, and he immediately gave medications. I would have like more explaination & time with him. Overall, it was a good visit. I would return if needed. It's nice they send the prescription directly to the pharmacy.
Knowledgeable, patient and approachable.
THE DOCTOR SPENT LESS THAN 10 MINUTES IN THE EXAM ROOM. I DIDN'T FEEL LIKE MY QUESTIONS WERE TAKEN SERIOUSLY.
I really like this doctor, his manner and his ability to immediately send prescriptions to my pharmacy electronically. I highly recommend!
