Provider Reviews

When I was admitted to the hospital I was so fortunate that Dr.M, was the cardiologist on call. He's taken such good care of me and recommended the best surgeon to do my TAVR surgery. He also has the best staff ever.

Review for Dr. Moussa

TeleHealth appointment was so much better than I thought it would be. Glad I did it that way and took care of my health. Recommend TeleHealth with Dr. Holtzmeier. Straightforward, caring, and very effective- virtually.

Review for Dr. Holtzmeier

I had upper and lower blepharoplasty with Dr. Khory and couldn’t be more pleased. He delivered exactly what he promised — a more rested, more youthful look. I’m still technically healing at the 3 month period but extremely happy with my outcome. His staff is super kind and friendly as well.

Review for Dr. Khoury

Absolutely love him. He is smart, caring, and calm in stressful situations. I had complications my entire first pregnancy and the delivery went worse but he managed everything so well and saved my baby girls life. He will always be my OBGYN!

Review for Dr. Stokes

Dr. Gillespie is awesome he has been there for me through all of my three shoulder surgeries, I wouldn't want anyone else doing my surgeries except Dr. Gillespie. Shoulders are hard to fix. Yes, I would recommend him.
