Review for Dr. McHugh

I went for over a MONTH with a UTI and I wasn't getting any better. Just putting me on antibiotics. Went to a different practice and got the care I needed right away. I was finally got a diagnosis and treatment and I am started feeling better. Thank goodness I went for a 2nd opinion.

Disappointed patient Sep 24 2022

Review for Dr. Patel

Doc seemed knowledgable but staff and office needs a lot of work. No communication skills and no way to actually reach someone without leaving messages. Don't understand him changing cardiac meds without reaching out to my cardiologist.

Review for Dr. Han

My mother had not been able to wear shoes for over a year. Thanks to Dr Farley and his staff we are shoe shopping. She is so happy.
