My first visit with Dr. Hnida was perhaps the best doctor's visit I've had in my life. He is unrushed, attentive, and kind. Most of my past doctors were, at best, 2 out of 3 of these things. He's clearly knowledgeable, and takes the time to understand what your goals are health-wise. I recommend him highly.

Dr. Hnida is patient and thorough. I was impressed with the ease of scheduling an appointment and waited less than five minutes. This was a great experience at the doctor's office (as great as those can be!). I also requested a different medication a couple of days and received a call back within two hours. Great service from all involved!

I had a complicated injury and had seen several doctors with little relief. Dr Hnida spent more than 30 minutes with me, let me talk and ask questions, then recommended some treatments without medication that worked quickly and allowed me to get back to normal within 2 weeks. I had been down for more than 3 months! Very thorough and easy to talk to.
