Did a thorough job on my hernia, explained everything in detail in advance and after. Pretty much a pain free experience, no meds needed! Her cheerful upbeat approach I much appreciated compared to the dour MDs we often meet.

Everything happened as I was told it would. The staff was pleasant. Dr. Bookwalter, himself, called later that evening to see how I was doing. It truly was a pleasant experience.

Review for Dr. Andrew Bookwalter, DDS

Leah and Sarah are great, so the 1 star rating shouldn't be reflective on them. Otherwise, the office is poorly managed. Long wait times, doesn't answer or return calls and billing/insurance claim errors.

Dr. G is great. Have been going here for years and love the staff. He is very honest, which a lot of people cannot handle, but it is obvious he has his patients' best interest at heart. They can usually see me the day I call to schedule an appointment.

I have to follow up on my review of February 7, 2019. I continue to see Dr. Zaky because of his genuine and compassionate care. It is clear that his goal is to get me out of pain. Based on my experience I have been happy to recommend to neighbor to Dr. Zaky.

Review for Dr. Wadid Zaky Salama, MD

Blood work is not even reviewed, conditions go unnoticed. My new DR. ordered blood work and spotted it right away and said stage 3 kidney issues that simple blood work should have been spotted on previous annual blood work test results.

Review for Dr. Lawrence Kemp, MD

He is a fabulous doctor. Twice he has diagnosed a problem I was having, after another cardiologist told me, “I have no idea!” He is calm, a great listener, and has great instincts to diagnose. I’m very thankful to have found him after a recommendation from my endocrinologist. I trust him fully.
