Dr. Morganelli is an excellent doctor. This is my first pregnancy and she takes her time, listens to me, and answers all my paranoid questions. I do not feel discriminated against, as I have sadly felt with other physicians and appreciate her very much. Thank you Dr. Morganelli.

Two teeth pulled and three implants - given these rather unpleasant conditions, I couldn't have hoped for any better experience. My, GP who started work on the crowns today, said "he did a great job as he always does". I'd highly recommend him.

Dr Potter is wonderful. He spoke directly to my 13 year old daughter the whole consultation and took time to really explain what was going with her eye (stye). He was gentle and thorough and we never felt rushed. Thank you as well to a great nursing and office staff - a well run business.

The reason for one star is due to his reprehensible staff. As a founding physician, he's responsible for them. I'm sure he's above reproach, but his non-clinical staff is not. Demeanor is everything and it all starts with him.cr

Review for Dr. Fedor

For a guy who couldn't get admitted to an American Medical School, he sure has an excessive sense of self-worth. When caught in a medical mistake he becomes aggressive, defensive, and dismissive. Stay away from this malpractice suit waiting to happen.
