Review for Dr. McCleary

Dr. Birusingh recently performed my vasectomy and I think he did a fantastic job. 24 hours in and I have nearly zero swelling and very little pain. Far less traumatic than I had anticipated.

Review for Dr. Wimer

Dr. Toby Marshall is the most comprehensive Gynecologist I have ever had. He diagnosed a very complex syndrome I had that an Endocrinologist could not. He is a wonderful doctor

Review for Dr. Marshall

From the first visit in October 2019, it was more like a conversation with a friend. He explained things in terms I could understand. His skilled hands with robotic surgery left me minimal side effects. Bedside manner told me he cares. Great person, great doctor. Highly recommend him
