Overall - appt was great. In person, everything was great and the staff was friendly and personable. Over the phone, service was terrible. The receptionist was rude, didn't provide her name, and was less than helpful.

This was my first time at this clinic. I went for my annual physical. Receptionists and nurses were all helpful and friendly. Didn't have to wait at all. They checked my vitals and did all the tests quickly but without rushing. They asked questions to establish health status. The doctor was easy to talk. The clinic and the staff made me feel comfortable. The clinic itself is also very clean, bright and welcoming. I will definitely be sticking with it for my next checkups.

The doctor himself seemed very kind and knowledgeable, but the visit was a bit perfunctory. The check-in person and nurse were great. The woman who checked me out was for some reason borderline hostile from the moment I walked up to the desk. Left a bad taste in my mouth, for sure.

Dr. Alstein was professional and seemed well informed. He was very quick with our appointment and just ran quickly through a list of check points and suggested me to specialist. Overall the entire staff was polite but efficient and quick so keep that in mind if you are person who needs extra time and attention.

Dr. Alstein is great. He's one of the few doctors I've met who treats his patients like partners--actually going through the chart with you, explaining what he'd like to test and why. What a refreshing experience.
