Great visit. Dr. Kotlyar took his time to full explain the cause of my condition and offered various treatment options. Wecame up with a treatment plan which was started immediately. He is very honest and direct, and will tell you exactly what needs to be done in order to alleviate the pain and prevent it from happening again. I feel very comfortable in his care.

Hands down best doctor's office. From the moment I walked in the front desk receptionist greeted me and began the registration process. She was warm and pleasant. Dr. Kotlyar expertly performed a physical exam and pinpointed where my pain wascoming from. He took his time to explain and answer all my questions which made me relax. Highly recommend if you want doctor who know what he's doing.
