    Dr. Engler has taken excellent care of my family for over a decade. It is obvious that he cares deeply about his patients as he always goes out of his way to provide the best care possible. Although he has a very busy practice, he always takes the time to listen and understand our issues. He is incredibly knowledgeable and thoughtful, and proactively seeks out treatment plans that work for my family's chronic asthma and allergy conditions. He has one of the best run medical office I have seen. His staff and nurses are top notch; they are always helpful and caring. We feel so lucky to have found Dr. Engler and we hope that he never retires. He is truly one in a million!

    Dr Engler is the BEST! He is a well established doctor with many patients locally & abroad, yet he took the time to make me feel like I was the only patient in his office. I have asthma, it was my first visit. Dr. Engler was friendly, made me feel very comfortable. He worked w me to address all of my health concerns. He diagnosed my problem accurately. My breathing was better within 2 days taking his medication! I am very pleased with my experience.
