Review for Dr. Petkov

The doctor was fantastic and the front desk girls - very sweet. But two other things left a huge impression on me. First, the cleanliness and organization of their office was impeccable. That's a rare sight in doctor offices. Also, I noticed them cleaning and sanitizing everything. I will be back.

Review for Dr. Kallina

Dr. Gould is terrific but there are several points I would like to raise: 1) the office is pretty crusty and could use a coat of paint, some new furniture and soap and water. 2) Wait time is excessive 3) Needs wireless network for patient use

Jun 09 2020

Review for Dr. Gould

I denounce the way I was treated. You didn't care when I asked, or speak about it. Why would I give you a five (5) star rating? I cannot accept that! Will I go back to you, and the answer is "No". Will I recommend you, "No." I'm sorry, that is the way If feel.
