Review for Dr. Eggers

Great Doctor, has always treat me my family and myself with respect. To those who gave him a negative review, I might recommend a therapist because it sounds like you might need one.

Review for Dr. Distasio

I am not sure I have ever seen a more attentive and kind doctor. Does a very good and thorough job explaining his process and where he is coming from, and explains back to you what he is hearing you say to make sure you all are on the same page. I was so impressed.
