Review for Dr. Gosselin

Dr Boula helped me a lot. She noticed I had a low ferritin level and I needed iron. This had been overlooked by other doctors. Dr Boula also diagnosed my sleep apnea. I was able to get a machine and she was instrumental in that due to her documrntation. She was helpful to me.

Mary Apr 28 2020

Review for Dr. Bhola

He is brilliant. From one symptom, relayed to him by my wife, he immediately knew that I was on the wrong medication and that I was headed down the wrong path. He changed the medication on the spot and he saved my life. I can’t say enough about his intelligence and his bedside manner.

Dr Castro, is more than a doctor, he's become a trusted friend. Someone I trust with my life. Not to many people can say that in this day and age. If you're looking for this type of relationship, a provider who's straight shooter and practices what he preaches, Dr Castro's your man!!

Dr. Zouhairi is a very knowledgeable gastroenterologist. I felt completely at ease while under his care and found his "bedside manner" to be excellent. His diagnosis and associated treatment allowed for a full recovery. I would certainly see him again in the future!

Horrible doctor. No bedside manner. He could care less. He'll show some compassion if you are an attractive woman. Not a joke. Seriously.LOVES to roll his eyes at you. Great trait for a health care provider.

Review for Dr. Callender

He is very unprofessional and after waiting over an hour to see him for five minutes of him rolling his eyes not caring for how I felt or listened to anything myself or the physical therapist were saying. His arrogance and attitude were unwarranted I would never get treated by this doctor again

I have had 2 surgeries on my spine with Dr. Oppenheim. Each time, I have come away pain-free. Dr. Oppenheim has shown me the personal care and concern that every doctor should. I hope I never have another surgery on my spine, but if I do, I know where I am going. I am eternally grateful to him.

Michael Latino Feb 12 2020

Review for Dr. Oppenheim

Dr. Singh is a very good doctor, however, it is nearly impossible to get through to this office. The standard wait time to speak with the staff for an appointment and/or other concerns, can be anywhere from 15-30 minutes! This should not be acceptable and needs to be addressed!
