Because this was an urgent care facilities, I felt that my exam was done fairly quickly, with not too much emphasis on being extremely thorough. But, the doctor was nice as well as the staff members. I would definitely go back, again.

We did have an appointment, but had to wait 45 minutes anyway due to the volume of people. Probably due to flu. But we will never schedule on a Saturday again. Spent 2 hours total there. As for the Doctor himself,our 15 year old needed to switch to a regular doctor. Seena is a knowledgeable doctor with a great manner.

One of the best doctors I have had and I have had alot. He took time with me to talk about my past history, my daily life so he can understand my lifestyle and when I asked, he recommended a listof 2 or 3 different specialist and explained a bit about each of them so I was able to make a good choice. Nice, sweet and caring.

Except for the sign in,where I was forgotten and left in the waiting room for 45 minutes. I was told the computer didn't register my name, I was the only person in waiting area and the receptionist even said hello tome. When I went up to ask about the delay, then I was taken in to see the doctor and the rest of the appointment was very good.

Listens to what you have to say. Engaging. Works to make you comfortable. Definitely willing to make changes in medications. And keeps in mind that your particular insurance needs to cover what he is recommending be it medication or specialistson a list that he thinks you need to see. Other doctors have never, ever mentioned that he/she will keep within your insurance coverage for your care. Highly recommend.
