Patient Testimonials

  • Excellent, knowledgeable physician and great office support.

    – Barry T.

  • Great doctors and assistants.

    – Jorge M.

  • Great doctor. In-house testing is great, no traveling all over for different tests.

    – S.

  • Very knowledgeable with visits and tests. Plus he helped discover a problem that others could not find. He notified me that the heart was fine, but my liver enzymes were elevated. I had been having increasingly severe muscle weakness for a couple of years, and my primary care physician could not find the cause. We realized that the combination of muscle weakness and high liver enzymes were indicative of myositis, which neurologist and rheumatologist confirmed and treated. I'm back to normal now.
