Review for Dr. Tsibulsky

Listened! Explained very clearly. I gave only four stars because I've only seen him once. But would like to see him in future. Gave choices for my care.

Review for Dr. Pearce

He addressed and instructed me on any questions or concerns I had promptly. He is direct and to the point which I like.

Review for Dr. Redd

He doesn't give up on me. He listens to me and analyzes my symptoms and prescribes a medicine to help. Even when it takes a year or more, to get blood pressure under control, he keeps thinking and researching for meds to help me.
