Dr. Jackson is a very thorough, compassionate, and caring physician. She doesn’t rush through your appointment, listens to your concerns, and never demeans or degrades you. She is very knowledgeable, and if she doesn’t know the answer to your question, she will get back with you in a timely manner.

Dr Hughes is the best! Highly skilled, professional and knowledgeable! He diagnosed and then performed a colectomy on me on June 15, 2020. My pain has gone from an 8/9 to a 2. My activity level is getting back to normal. Dr. Hughes is attentive and cares about his patients!

I have been seeing Dr. Brown for at least 5 years. Honestly one of the best doctors I have seen...he is very knowledgeable and personable, and he listens and explains things very well.

Review for Dr. Brown

Excellent service and bedside manner. I absolutely refuse to see another cardiologist. When he moved, I moved. He has been my physician for more than 10 years. I don’t have to ask questions because he covers everything during your visit, the good and the bad and the not so good.

Dr. Lefkowitz is great.. He explains what he is going to do prior to the procedure, which was very tedious. He was very patient. He is very easy going & personable. My forehead & Around the eye looks great. Very happy with the results. His office personnel & nurses are very nice and helpful.

Dr. Thompson and his hospital system charged twice the advertised list price for a drug for my wife ($2500 vs $1250). Rate was only based on the highest rate an insurance company would pay - ours didn't pay anywhere near that.
