The NP-doc has a great sense of humor and is very approachable. Listens to and answers any questions you may have. He takes his time with you, and I did not feel rushed.

Review for Assad Mujtaba

The doctor was fantastic. He listened, and addressed the issues I was experiencing. He was very thorough and showed concern for my fears on my first visit to him for a physical. I'll keep him as my primary care physician. He comes strongly recommended.

Review for Dr. Prevor-Weiss

Not personale at all. Very serious and not helpful. It was so awkward with him that I couldn't help but laugh and he kept pressing me for laughing and was not happy with me. Super weird. Im sure hes very smart but I would not recommend based on personality.
