Review of Dr. Garber


Been blessed to have him as my Doctor for over 30 years!! Consistently kind , caring , knowledgeable, confident , etc. 30 years plus means being with me through both my parents passing getting married and having 2 daughters grow into women. You never feel rushed. He’s the best

Review of Dr. Shukla


In my opinion, she's not thorough, forgetful, not in tune with patient's individualized needs, doesn't offer appropriate follow up and ill-equipped. I'm very unhappy with her level of competence

Review of Dr. Hook


I have no idea how others rated him high. This dr has bad reviews on other sites. He is neglectful and dismissive. Did not listen to any of my symptoms, interupted me after asking me a question, and didnt look at the list of my symptoms I wrote down for him. He barely touched my problem areas and diagnosed me with fibromyalgia which doesnt even match half of my symptoms. Awful experience and a waste of time.

Review of Dr. Shukla


Dr. Shukla met me with a "I am too old, i shouldnt have so many young patients" and a "my nurse likes to diagnose before i do, so we will just test you for lymes just to make her feel better". So, she started off with A. I dont want to be your primary care doctor and B . I undermine my nurses in front of my patients because I feel superior to them (even though the nurse was in the right direction). She blamed my adverse symptoms (muscle weakness, joint pain, spasms, chest pain, etc.) on my 2 tattoos, marijuana usage, and mental health. She brought up scars on my arms from 10 years ago (I'm 23) when I tried showing her a really odd rash that erupted around the time my symptoms did that was near them and completely deflected the conversation to the scars and my psychiatric health. She basically tested me for Hep which was neg and told me to find a psychiatrist.

Review of Dr. Hook


Very little eye contact. Preferred to focus on typing into the exam room computer. I did not get the impression he was well versed on rheumatologic conditions or simply had the inability to explain his findings and recommendations.

Review of Dr. Zimmerman


Very thorough and listens to what a patient has to say. Gives excellent feedback as the exam progresses. A very pleasant and caring practitioner. Minus one star because of the network he works within.

Review of Dr. Shukla


Nice and smiling on the outside, however very condescending and extremely traditional. Felt like she was finding anything to discount me, not help me. Also started off by insulting her nurse who was more on the mark than she was.
