I have been with Dr Tomkins for years. She takes her time with you. She is knowledgeable, but not arrogant to the point where she dismisses your concerns.

Parra's been my doc for years. She's fabulous in every way. Especially because she honored the appointment that Zoc Doc, screwed up. I had mistakenly scheduled two appointments. Once for today 8/24/15, and one for 8/31/15. I booked this monthsago, immediately saw my error, and cancelled the 8/31 appointment. For some reason, the info as it went to my doctors office, kept the one on the 31st, but cancelled the one today. Not sure what happened, but they made room to see me today, after I showed them now Zoc Doc has sent me confirmations via my phone about today's appointment.
