This is my new doctor’s office. If you keep late hours and getting to the doctor is difficult and you are tired of those long waits and feeling ignored this is where you should come. He answered the phone on his day off and told my daughter to bring my granddaughter on in and he would see them. What’s that worth?

Very welcoming and friendly. As a working mom, I love the hours!! Very professional and time efficient. I Love this place! I have had to take my youngest a few times for non-emergency sickness. she just turned one (some clinics won’t see babies that young). But they took great care of her!! Very thankful for this place and the great service they provide.
