Review for Dr. Dold

Dr. Vallera is a caring and thorough physician, he explained my condition and what I was to expect. He spent time with me and did not appear rushed—valuable to a patient! I wholeheartedly recommend Dr Vallera to anyone needing GI care.

Review for Dr. Vallera

My family LOVES Dr. Cole. We have been going to her for 18 years. I trust her with my kids. She's a great doctor and a great person. I love her staff. Especially Latisha and Charity. They have been with her for the long haul. My family wouldn't know what to do without them.
