What People Say About Dr. Alex Befeler, MD
Reply
The office staff is efficient and timely. There was a good flow from check in to vitals to history review to being seen by the care team. My questions and concerns were addressed and passed to the doctor for review and reinforcement. The appointment was efficient without wasting time but not rushed. All of my concerns were addressed and a Rx review was completed as well as lab results. I received a follow up call providing additional answers. Highly recommended.
