Amazing experience. Only issue is the wait time.

Review for Dr. Gomez

Dr. Gomez always comes in with his hand held out and a smile on his face. He sits down to listen to your questions and explains the MRI and what he is going to do in surgery. I will readily refer my friends to Dr. Gomez when a back surgeon is needed.

Review for Dr. Sharma

Before I moved here, I had the same provider for years. Changing PCPs was a high source of anxiety for me! I went through a couple and then found Dr Dubose. She has been an excellent PCP. She always takes time to listen to my concerns and discuss treatment opportunities.

Review for Dr. Dubose

Dr. Nawaz listens and takes time to explain and discuss with me. He is very kind and also funny. His close monitoring and follow-along is awesome. I recommend him wholeheartedly.
