I would highly recommend Dr. Mathew for pain management. He is the most attentive and knowledgeable doctors I have seen.

Perfectly wonderful. Talked to me in non-medical terms and was very genuine. He truly cares for his patients and I thank him for taking care of my dad as his health declines.

Dr. Metzger is a wonderful doctor who thoroughly cares for her patients. She is to the point which can sometimes come off as blunt but she wants to help find the best solution or course of treatment.

Jun 10 2020

Review for Dr. Metzger

Thorough exam but no feedback at all. Just wanted to pass me off to another office with no explanation. Feels like being scammed. Imagine paying a mechanic $600 only to be told to go somewhere else and no reason why. I feel robbed.

Review for Dr. Doce

Definitely no empathy. Interrupts when you are explaining. Provided no diagnostic after a rushed basic exam despite my GP’s recommendation of an EMG. Does not seem to communicate well, just wants to rush through appointments.

Review for Dr. Doce

Dr. Having, preformed a lumbar spine and cervical spine surgery. I would give her five stars any day. I live in Montana now and have to have another surgery for spinal stenosis. How I wish Dr. Hlavin, were closer!!

Dr. Safdar is the best psychiatrist I have worked with in the 37 years I’ve been treated for bi-polar disease. He is easy to understand, provides options, and both listens to me and cares about my health. And his sense of humor is a big. Plus!

Robyn Ireland Jan 29 2020

Review for Dr. Safdar

She is very rude and short with patients. I believe she knows what she’s doing, but my mom is a quiet person. Nabi can be very intimidating, which leaves my mom from asking questions. I would never recommend her.

Review for Dr. Nassif

Dr. Dvorak literally saved my mom's toe when she was having wound problems for over a year, which other doctors couldn't get under control. He is very knowledgeable and personable and the best podiatrist in the area in my opinion. He was a blessing.

T.D. Tesar Jan 14 2020

Review for Dr. Dvorak

Best doctor I ever had. Very Knowledgeable. Has answers and reasons for the answers for any question you might ask. Very efficient, but always shows interest in the patient, and willing to spend as much time as necessary for you to understand your ailment and the proposed solution.

Dale Boddicker Jan 09 2020

Review for Dr. Younger

Review for Dr. Kim

She had my daughter do an MRI, when the neurologist went through the results, which were negative, it was apparent how bothered and annoyed he was by the Dr. Having no reason to order an MRI. Plus I believe she over prescribed antibiotics among several other complaints I have.
