I would feel more comfortable if doctors and staff all wore masks because of the risk of asymptomatic COVID carriers

Quick and efficient process of checking in and having x-rays taken. Dr. Cantrell and his staff are very attentive and understanding. Surgery was scheduled on-the-spot and, again, was very efficient. Everyone there is a pleasure to deal with.

Office staff was short like I was bothering them with my call. Was looking for female MD. Don’t think her staff cares about her reputation. MD might be the best around but I will never know.

Review for Dr. Loncar

The man has no bedside manner. He has very little sympathy for women suffering from endometriosis and speaks in a very condescending manner. His staff is also not very friendly. He always appears to be in a hurry and makes you feel as if you are wasting his time.

Dr. Shelton is an amazing dentist, but his receptionist is extremely rude and genuinely seems to be bothered by talking to any patient/parents. I will not be back and would not recommend to anyone for that fact alone.

Dr. Tafazoli is great. I use him for general care, female yearly exams, and sleep med. It's very nice to have a doctor that can be in control of your complete care. Is front desk staff and phone staff are not very great, but the nurses in the back are nice. Be prepared to wait.
