Dr. Pearson spent a lot of time with me and discussed all my medical issues thoroughly. I did not feel rushed, and felt at the end of the visit that all of my questions were answered. I would recommend Dr. Pearson to anybody who wants a caring, concerned, and thoughtful Family Physician.

All my questions were always answered. Dr. Stern took very good care of me, even after being referred to rheumatology and receiving a diagnosis, he continued his care for me. Together, we came up with a long term care plan.

Dr. Putnam treated me when I was a child and then again after I retired from the US military. One of the best doctors out there. I hope to see him again someday but just moved out of state. So the search is on for a new PCM. Thanks for everything Dr. Putnam. Chris

Review for Dr. Putnam

Recently when my husband experienced a health crisis, we were having difficulty accessing the specialist he needed. Dr. Tasher went above and beyond to help and fill in with excellent interim care. We often recommend Dr. Tasher. He is an asset to the medical community. And his patients.

Dr. Laverson is the best plastic surgeon around. His staff is so amazing. Dr. Laverson takes his time and explains everything so throughly. Most Doctors are in it for the money and this place is anything but that. Seriously the best experience I have ever had with any medical facility.

I don’t feel like she listens to me. She talks nonstop and does not even explain things well when she does. She has good intentions, but I don’t feel like she is up to date on the latest sleep strategies and is insensitive to new moms trying their best.

Dr. Nguyen delivered both my boys 4 years apart and both experiences were absolutely perfect. She listens, is very reassuring, and everything seems “easy” for her. She’s not the smiliest but she’s most definitely a wonderful doctor. I highly recommend.

Review for Dr. Nguyen

Very happy with entire process for hernia repair. Doctor his the fact that maybe my hernia wasn’t as bad as I thought but understood my fear of having it to begin with and fixing the problem. I’m very happy with the recovery too, I was able to walk out of the surgery center to the car.

Before I found Steve I went to a few other doctors and no one compares to him. I instantly felt comfortable around him and the staff and havent met a doctor that cared as much as he did. He's truly an amazing doctor. I am extreamly happy with the results of my rhinoplasty and so glad I went to him.
