Review for Dr. Hensley

Review for Dr. Chaudhry

Doctor didn’t bother call, text, email, for appointment. They also have the audacity to charge me with a no show fee instead of making an attempt to even contact me.

Review for Dr. Ghuman

So far everything up to this day has been great. The staff is alway friendly when I come to an appointment, they are very attentive to my need and answered any questions I had. Today is my surgery day after 6 months of dietary appointments and check ups! I’m excited to get back to a healthy weight...
