"I've been a patient here for about 5 years and I have grown to appreciate this place quite a bit over the years.It's a complete and total package facility. You are not automatically covered by all the services they have available, so make sure you check your insurance coverage for services... But under a single office they have a lab, x-ray facility, ENT services, Allergy services, and apparently dermatology services? Never used that last one.But being able to call a single phone number and get all my different issues handled through a single facility has been extremely helpful in my life. Specific people to mention, David Fraser, the PA I normally see is a very kind gentleman with a whole career of experience and good bedside manner. Very friendly, honest and open.Michelle, the allergy technician is extremely nice and very responsive in mixing up new vials for shots when you run out.Front desk people are always VERY busy, even if they appear like they're not helping a specific person. I went every week for allergy shots for over two years, I promise you, they're busy working, they are not ignoring you.I have seen four out of the seven on-staff doctors here as well and never had a complaint about any of them. Always willing to help me through my weird medical issues I've had over the years."- A.S. / Yelp / Jun 04, 2014
