Provider Reviews

Dr. Makos treated me before relocating. She was very attentive, caring and relentless in my diagnosis. I appreciated her knowledge, as well as her straight-forward and kind bedside manner. I was sorry to see her go....she is an amazing doctor.

Review for Dr. Makos

Excellent doctor. Extremely caring & considerate. Very thorough in both my son's migraine care and in care I myself received. Friendly, kind bedside manner. Treated us as if we were intelligent unlike some doctors! Time was well spent in all aspects of our care. Would recommend highly.

Have been seeing Dr. Gorrell for 14 years. Have always - every time - had a positive experience and outcome.

Review for Dr. Gorrell

Probably one of the most straightforward doctors I dealt with during my mother's illness. She and her assistant made things happen and she was most concerned with my mother's comfort level as she neared the end of her life. She puts the patient first.

Review for Dr. Makos

Everyone in this office is very nice, listens to my concerns, and explains everything in normal people terms not in medical mumbo jumbo. Doctor Martin has a way of easing your worries by telling what exactly is going on & what can be done in a caring manner.

Dr. Gorrell takes the time to listen to you. You do not feel rushed as you do with many other Drs. I would recommend her. We are new patients and I had our records transferred to this clinic. Everyone was helpful and nice!

Review for Dr. Gorrell

I have had colonoscopies for over 40 years and Dr. Voight is The Best - I have now seen him twice and both times were very pleasant. He is so gentle that going through the procedure without sedation is absolutely no problem.

Review for Dr. Bass

Dr Makos does not listen to her patients . She kept pushing shots injections on me when I really want therapy. I told her I did not want to mask the symptoms, but instead cure it. She just walk out of the room to get Dawn ,her NP. Dawn does listen and open mind. Ask for Dawn instead of Mako's.

Dr. Kaczmarek made the vasectomy experience as pleasant and painless as it could be. He was very personal and easy to talk to. I felt like he cared about me and I wasn't just another patient through the door.

He was friendly and stopped to explain everything as he went along. Making sure we understood what he was telling us before he continued on.

I have found Dr. Potter and his staff to be both courteous and knowledgeable. Dr. Potter never appears to be in a hurry and will take the time to answer your questions to your satisfaction.

New patient. Wants to start taking medicines away that I take. All right if that's good but I have high blood pressure so scary. Family history of women with strokes and dying.
