Staff is the best! Friendly and very helpful....Doctor nothing less than top notch - he gives you the time needed to address your concerns and the treatments provide tremendous relief. Office is beautiful and spotless. It's so refreshing togo to a doctors' office where the staff doesn't treat you like you're a nuisance, and the doctor is actually caring and not rushing to get to the next patient. A+

Great experience all around. Dr. Macek's office staff and assistants were very professional and extremely friendly. Having recently relocated to the area, it was fantastic to find a practice that really made me feel, "home".... I am prettypicky and somewhat critical, too. No need to search any further, make an appointment, and you will be referring Dr. Macek and his clinic as well...

I am very pleased with my initial consultation and first line of treatment with Dr. Macek. My visit from the start to finish was conducted in an efficient and most professional method.

Tom was great, but we had to fill out all the paperwork again there after we had already filled it out here at ZocDoc because they did not have a filled out copy there. Interesting they did not get or maybecould not print out a copy of what all we had filled out here, but Dr. Tom Macek was wonderful and we highly recommend him.

I have seen more doctors than I care to, but Dr. Macek REALLY stands out! The office staff and doctor were a pleasure to deal with. Dr. Macek has a wonderful demeanor and took his time with me. He listened toeverything and discussed multiple treatment options. He was open to alternative ideas and is not one of those doctors who just wants to write an rx and get you out of the office.
