Super lucky to have Dr. favreau as my PCP. She listens, takes her time with you, and will work with you. She is easy to follow up with if you have any questions or concerns. I’m so thankful she is my doctor. 100% recommend!

Review for Dr. Colvin

I am excited to have her as my primary care doctor. I tried to get her when Dr. Pleasants retired. I love her! She actually listens to her patients and wants to fix the problem, not put you on meds and send you out the door. She’s personable, professional and the best doctor there.

Review for Dr. Gebhard

I've never left a visit without feeling dismissed and insulted. He seems bored when speaking with me and often changes the subject before I've finished answering a question. I think the doctor is competent, but his people skills are severely lacking.

This doctor apparently informed my parent who is in their 60s (and highly suggestible) that face masks do nothing to prevent the spread of Covid-19. This makes me worry for my parent's health as they have pre-existing medical conditions. Absolutely ridiculous.
