He took care of my 96 year old dad, when visiting me. He had congestive heart failure and Dr Fiore diagnosed it and sent him to the hospital. I've seen him in urgent care for myself and just think he's great.

Review for Dr. Fiore

Dr. K is amazing. Tiny surgical scar when done!

Shelli Douglass May 25 2022

Review for Dr. Knutson

Dr. Chammas is a carrying physician that goes the extra mile for his patients. Dr. Chammas saved my life and I’m for ever grateful to him.

Sophia Katsamagas May 25 2022

Review for Dr. Chammas

The doctor is at a serious age, which greatly complicates communication, the environment is not very friendly, Analyzes and other information is not saved.

Elena K May 25 2022

Review for Dr. Magat

I took my 96 year old dad to him and he missed his congestive heart failure. Took to urgent care next day and Dr. Fiori sent him to the hospital immediately. My dad could have died.
