Review for Dr. Singhall

He is somewhat pleasant but I will finally be taking the time to find a new PCP. He always tells me "I don't know" when I go to see him about issues going. What is the point of me driving all the way there and paying my copay for you to tell me you don't know whats going on.

Dr Franklin replaced my total knee replacement for the 3rd time. This was the first time I used Dr Franklin. He is an excellent Doctor!

Jul 16 2020

Review for Dr. Franklin

The wait time is always over an hour, the nurses aren’t necessarily friendly and can be quite judgmental. Dr Carlson neglects to tell patients important details that may cause permanent scarring or damage. Appointments are rushed which is surprising seeing how far behind their schedule is.

Jul 14 2020

Review for Dr. Carlson

Very good first experience. Office returned my call and promptly made my appointment. All staff were friendly and helpful. Dr quickly identified my condition and layed out a plan of action. Dr was conscious of treatment costs in his plan.

Dr. Arthur takes care of a nonverbal client of mine. He smiles and happily engages him as if he will talk back and my client looks forward to his visits with him. He smiles whenever he hears Dr. Arthur's voice on the other side of the door. I would HIGHLY recommend him to ANYBODY.

He is an amazing doctor. He has performed cervical spine surgery on me twice. Has patience and is not one of those doctors that have a 15 minute time frame. Explains fully and answers any questions you may have. I highly recommend him. I consider him to be one of my angels.

Review for Dr. Patel

The office staff, the nurse in particular shows no professionalism or respect for the clients rights. The front desk receptionist is also extremely rude and unprofessional. They do not return phone calls nor do they send paperwork in a timely manner. Would like to leave "no" stars!

Jun 09 2020

Review for Dr. Garner

He is very caring and takes time with his patients. He treats you like a person not a number. He and Courtney are quick to return messages and resolve issues. The front desk on the flip side is less personable and sometimes rude . Do use patient portal when you need to reach him.
