Terrible doctor, I broke My hand in September. He put it in a cast and a month later my hand was still broken. He had no intentions of fixing it nor did he care

Great doctor. Very caring. His early detection of a heart condition most likely saved my life.

Review for Dr. Manuel Caga-Anan, MD

Dr. Gill is very caring and has a great bedside manner. I've been a patient of his for many years, and have zero complaints. His office staff are very friendly and I love his nurses. I have recommended Dr. Gill to both friends and family.

Dr. Sam was very helpful from the moment I walked into his office. He was very helpful and correctly diagnosed me and treated me very quickly. My family and I trust him very much, and I am always happy to go to him.

I would not go to Dr. Gill is he was the last Doctor on earth. I would rather treat myself, probably have better result.

Dr jabel cares about his patients. But the office staff is a different story. Its a shame that they don't have compassion like he does.

Dr. Al-Hashmi listened and ran the important tests to figure out what was wrong with my daughter. Thank goodness for his knowledge and experience. He explained her diagnoses and checked on her several times. I will always trust Dr. Al-Hashmi!

He is rude and in love with himself. Acts like patients are annoying his wonderful life.

Review for Dr. Ronald Catanese, MD

Once diagnosis is made, minimal contact with doctor. Acts as if he has more important things to do than see patients. Did not give me a heads-up about upcoming procedures.

Review for Dr. Ronald Catanese, MD

I was there 45 minutes early for my appointment and waited an hour after my appointment time before being seen. The front office staff were the rudest I have ever seen in a doctors office. They lost my business. Caring staff I would say NO!!
