Provider Reviews

I don't really get to see Dr. V herself, but I see some of the other RNs and PAs and they are all very nice and good listeners.

Review for Dr. Vorderstrasse

Dr Blake seemed to be a straight and to the point Spector during regular scheduled visits. When my wife went into early labor everything that was happening to my wife was a bother to him. He was constantly on his phone and could not care any less about what was happening.

Review for Dr. Blake

I was sent to Dr. Basa when I was first diagnosed with Macular Degeneration. I didn't know what to expect. He explained my diagnosis to me, was compassionate & gentle. I have continued to go to him for monthly injections & he has always been great. I highly recommend him.

Review for Dr. Sansoucy

Dr. Fan is a great nephrologist. He spends time with his patients, and he is a very good listener. He has a great manner, and his suggestions are always given in a very supportive way.
