Doctor Galli has been my doctor since she is wonderful supportive patient and I appreciate everything she does.

Maddie Brown May 25 2020

Review for Dr. Galli

Nice to talk to and she is very knowledgeable.

Brad Moody May 23 2020

Review for Amanda Anderson

Definite lack of communication with this provider, no follow-up after tests, unless you contact them, and even then, information is minimal or nothing at all. Would not recommend.

May 16 2020

Review for Dr. Abu-Erreish

Beware! No longer wants you as a patient if you don’t get annual physicals. Was kicked out of my clinic after 41 years because I didn’t get an annual checkup.

I have already recommended him to 2 friends I know are struggling. He was quick to diagnose, quick to gw4 me in to correct a problem I had been struggling with for years. Friendly and professional. I felt very comfortable in an uncomfortable situation. I am grateful God put me in his path.

Review for Dr. Subhas

Dr. Block is very professional. He has very good "bed side manner". He is easy to talk to and is willing to take the time to sit down to visit with you addressing all of your concerns. He explains things in a way you can understand. I would definitely recommend him to family or friends.

Apr 13 2020

Awful! See ANY OTHER Doctor at Family Heath Care, but not Austreim-Krell. She's horrible. Extremely unprofessional!

Della K. Apr 08 2020

Review for Dr. Kuwahara

This is the worst so-called doctor that I have ever experiences. My mother and I both decided to use him and we both had terrible experiences. He doesn't listen, is insulting and rude, couldn't diagnose a common cold, and is not good at all. Find someone else
