Dr dobeki is amazing and very good at his job. His staff is HORRIBLE!!! They are rude, mean and incompetent! The scheduler, Nancy, has no regard for any patient and is slow and incompetent. She does not know how to do her job. She needs to be fired!! Trying to make an apt with the front deck is a freaking nightmare! It's like pulling teeth. All the staff needs to be fired!

Love Dr. Dobecki. He is polite, knowledgeable easy going and good at what he does. I have been seeing him for about 4+ years and go in about every 9 months as I call it for a tune up. Kelly his P.A. is caring and takes her time with you. I highly recommend this group. They are honest, up front and willing to take their time with you. .. Michaela
