Fantastic quick and lovely people. DRs are excellent and truly care about their patients. I've been with this practice for over 6 years after working with other doctors. There is no comparison. Best of the best!

Dr Francis Mwasela is a kind, patient and compassionate doctor. Unfortunately, I had a very poor experience when trying to reach him by phone. I have called several times and reached an answering machine. I would give him 5 Stars based on my first and only visit. I would give his office staff one star.

Dr. Francis Mwaisela is lovely, but his staff is difficult at best. I am a new patient with this practice and his staff has made my transition to his office extremely difficult. I would recommend Dr. Mwaisela with a warning about his staff. I feel that it is very important to have a staff that is both willing to help the patients, but also accommodating and pleasant to them as well. That is not the case with his staff. The last time I was in office, they did not even acknowledge my arrival.

This is the WORST place too ever go to.His secretaries are very rude and lazy.It took them a week to get back to me.I even tried to go to their office in person once to make an appointment,because I only got their voice mail on phone.The secretary there did not like I showed up there in person to make appointment.She told me that they were not an open clinic.She had a very bad attitude.I got my bill from them in the mail,but i still do not know my results from the testing done on me.
