Amazing experience. The secretary, the nurse, and the doctor were all amazing. They were quick to get me into the room and I didn’t have to wait on the doctor once in the room either. But, while they’re in the roomwith you, nobody is rushing you and the doctor works with you to find a solution together under his advisement. Is there a 6-Star option with this review??

Doctor was nice and very knowledgeable, he assessed the issue, time and available options and provided me with the right choice. Unlike many other appointments he made everything quick and was always straight on point. No pep talk, no unnecessary extras, just what I was looking for.

one of the best encounters with a medical activity in recent memory. This office is ready for the 21st century with the Zocdoc.com application that greatly enhances the scheduling process. But I also found the staff motivated, friendly andattentive to patient needs. They genuinely performed their duties in a purely professional full time manner rather than appearing distracted. Dr. Assaf was very focused and listened carefully to my concerns, taking the time to ensure a solution could be identified. Never felt there was a time constraint or limitation as I have in too many other experiences.

First visit to this office so I was a bit nervous. However, I was greeted with a smile the moment I walked in which immediately put me at ease. All the staff members were super friendly. Dr. Assaf has great bedsidemanner, was very thorough, and addressed all my concerns. The appointment did not feel rushed in the slightest. Parking was free and right next to the building so that was very convenient. A very, very pleasant doctor's visit.
