Jae May 14 2022

Review for Dr. Goel

Dr. Jaglan made me feel safe and paid attention to all of the details of my situation. He did not make assumptions or lump me into a group - he treated me as an individual.

Review for Dr. Jaffe

He is very caring and listens well. I've been seeing him for over 15 years. Government has limited what he can do with medication and drug cost makes it hard for him to actually help. Nice but limited solutions.

Review for Dr. Kamran

Everyone is friendly and Dr. Finkelman is thorough and listens to the patient. Offers options to deal with health problems and allows patient to make own decisions.
