Absolutely one of the nicest doctors I have ever met! His bedside manor is fantastic. I wish I went to him sooner!

Review for Dr. Salam

Dr. Bauer and his nurse have always been very helpful to me. He is very knowledgeable and willing to try different treatments to make my health condition better. But...I do think the main office could benefit from friendlier receptionists whom are greeting his patients.

Review for Dr. Salam

We absolutely adore Dr. Fazio. He was above and beyond helpful and considerate during my pregnancy. He takes plenty of time to listen to my concerns and is always pleasant. The wait time is often a little long. But when you find a doctor you like and trust you have to take the good with the bad.

Dr Sabbagh was amazing! He took his time with me and listened to my concerns. He knew exactly what was wrong and is working with me to get my thyroid issue fixed. There was no wait and his staff is very friendly.

My parents and I all have been patients of Dr. DeFrance for decades. He is an excellent physician and truly cares about his patients. He takes time and explains things to us, and offers different options if there are issues. We hope he never retires!

Review for Dr. Fogt

Dr. Gallaghers office is nothing more then a "pill mill" . If i had a choice he wouldn't even get 1 star. He does not care about his patients. The only thing he cares about is writing scripts and pusing you out the door. He NEEDS shut down!!!!
