After my eye exam with Dr. Wu, she determined that my eyes could use some exercise! She suggested downloading Eye Quix to my iPhone or Ipad. It is an app that Dr. Wu developed as a fun education app for "eye training." She is so devoted to her job and her patients.

I was amazed when I went for a scheduled eye exam appointment with Dr. Gloria Wu. I did not have signs of being a diabetic. But, after my eye exam, she recommended that I see my regular doctor for a check-up. She was right.

Dr. Durga Madala is the bomb! She has been my family cardiologist for many years. At 86 my mother had open heart surgery, and she is still going strong at 94. Dr. Madala has treated my husband, sisters, brother-in-laws, and myself. There is NO OTHER cardiologist I trust.

Had my one and only implant three years ago. It's clear Dr. Walker is an expert. No issues through any of the stages and now I don't even notice the implant is different from natural teeth. I would definitely return to him if I needed another.

Review for Dr. Chow

Awful psychiatrist. She sits with you for 10 minutes and is rude. She tries to keep you longer in a facility even when you’re doing well. She needs to retire or be fired. She doesn’t do her job nor does she care about her clients.

I would recommend Dr. Weibel to any one. His work is excellent first and I was surprised by his post care. He reached out to me several times to check and see how the post op was going. He was always available if I called. I'm very happy with the results. Office personnel was awesome.
