I was very happy with Dr. Kareus. I had some bothersome issues with my right arm and was concerned about the cause. He put my mind to rest in a short time and I left feeling much better.

Review for Dr. Kareus

Dr. Sayers is knowledgeable and kind. When I blurted out that I wasn't sure I was safe where I was living she brought in a staff member to help me find new housing quickly. She actually listens and sees and treats the whole person!

Review for Dr. Etcheverry

I recently had a routine colonoscopy with Dr. Prosser, and as with my previous experience with him, found him to be very professional with a personable bedside manner. I have confidence in his abilities. I found his staff to be approachable and responsive during the scheduling process.
