Review for Dr. Paquette

Very professional, with a sense of humor. Best doctor I've ever visited

Review for Dr. Smith

Dr. Govindarajan has been my dad’s doctor for 22 years. He is great, takes time explaining procedures and results. He follows up with me and calls me if anything comes abnormal. He is companionate and takes time to listen to his patients.

Review for Dr. Govindarajan

Had the gastric sleeve in July 2021 and I am extremely happy with my results. Dr. Naim was wonderful through the process.

Review for Dr. Naim

Never saw him once while I was in the behavioral health unit for a 72 hour hold. Saw his NP for a minute and was prescribed medication. Upon discharged my prescription was never sent to the pharmacy to pick up. Rude, insensitive, and just completely absent.
