Dr. Dantagnan is amazing! I followed him to his new practice, and it's been even better. When I call with a concern, his nurse returns calls almost immediately. Not sure why there are negative reviews! No complaint whatsoever here!

Review for Dr. Dantagnan

Upon meeting Dr Varughese I found his bedside manner professional and friendly. He actually listened to my issue and wasn’t eager to rush me out the door. I wish more doctors practiced this methodology of quality healthcare and not quantity. I’m thankful to call him my healthcare provider.

Dr. Shibu is a blessing! He took his time with me, and his diagnosis and treatment were effective immediately. He is a very kind man. His office staff were also excellent.
