Review for Dr. Pelletier Cameron

Great doctor. Very considerate, thorough exam. Even though blood test was negative, as well as internist’s opinion, his exam indicated RA and I have responded well to medication and have little to no joint pain.

Review for Dr. Mawby

I would highly recommend Dr. Taylor as she comes across as very caring, and has actually put several things in motion to help me with my condition. She listened to all my concerns and I never felt rushed. Her referrals have also been spot on.

Dr. Mir is extremely thorough and knowledgeable. She is able to address my medical problems well. She has greatly improved my medication regimen with her hard work. She goes the extra mile to make sure her patients are well taken care of. She even called my cardiologist to discuss my care.
