Review for Dr. Grover

Dr. Padron has been my doctor for the past 25 years. He is not only a good doctor but also consider him a friend. He is very smart and warm and has always been very proactive in detecting early serious conditions. Thanks to him I’m still here today.

Review for Dr. Padron

From the front desk to getting x rays to getting ready to leave everyone especially the doctor and his assistants have been very helpful and kind. Being here made me feel very comfortable and a little more safe as far as the staff taking care of me.

Review for Dr. Yagnik

My experience with Dr Hodgkins was amazing from start to finish. He explained everything in detail and left no questions unanswered. The procedure and recovery was exactly as described. I will have a similar procedure in my other foot and will undoubtedly House Dr Hodgkins again.
