I actually wound up seeing a different doctor from this practice. They moved locations and time to account for me inthe hopes I could have my cyst removed that same day as the visit! The staff was great, procedure quick and painless and an overall good experience.

Doctor is friendly and nice but i am not really happy that i have to pay $9 for parking, instead of $6. This is because i stayed longer because the doctor was late so I had to be extra for parking. The office should have helped atleast validate half of the ticket. ..just saying to be fair to a patient.

She is by far one of the best doctors I've ever seen. She remembers me each time I'm in her office and makes a rather uncomfortable conversation as painless as possible. She's non-judgmental and very easy to talk to.
