I have been a patient of Dr. Germain for over 10 years. You may have to wait a while to see him. The reason, is that he takes his time to evaluate and answers all your questions. He cares for all his patients. He does not rush to get to the next patient. The staff is great also.

Do not waste you're time and money here, because that's all you'll do. They charged me over 400 dollars out of pocket just to send me out for labs and films, on top of those facilities charges for those services. The staff is the most unprofessional and rude clinic staff I've ever dealt with. They...Read More
