Dr Citak really took his time with me. He listened to everything that I needed to say and answered my questions. He made sure that I knew what was happening with the injections every step of the way. Highly recommend.

Review for Dr. Grewal

Only a few minutes wait time and then a few more once in exam room. Dr Tsiouris had already reviewed my records from pulmonologist who referred me and was very prepared. He asked questions and examined me. He then clearly and patiently explained my condition and his recommendations for treatment...
