Always a breeze coming here, checking in with the staff and scheduling my next appointment at the end. Front desk can be gossipy in front of patients but what workplace isn't? I get it. I enjoy coming here. Super fast, clean, never a huge wait in the lobby and always able to answer my questions whatever they may be. Kristen V is super understanding and professional during my visits. She hears my concerns and we work together to find the best option for the issue.
Jan 13, 2022
Kristen understands her patients, all while maintaining a professional boundary. She's not a robot who just checks in and says bye. She cares and works with you to find the best solution to whatever issue you bring to the table. Myself and multiple other people from my workplace see her. We all agree she's the best and we enjoy our dr visits.

Sep 24, 2021
The covid questionaire was given verbally in the waiting room, enabling nearby patients to hear answers to questions like "Have you been exposed to anyone that tested positive for covid?" or "Have you received the covid vaccine?" - I think this could be given in a more private setting or changed to a written questionaire to increase privacy.
