Dr. Alithari is professional, friendly, and up to date on his medical certifications. He answers my questions confidently, is open to my suggestions and concerns, and shows flexibility regarding medications. I have also seen his nurse practitioner Mary Heart Johnson and I don't recommend her as much. She doesn't seem as knowledgeable or friendly. The wait times are also incredibly long, but there's plenty of comfortable seating. Water cooler, but no wifi. The reception staff is top notch.

One of the worst experiences in a dr's office that I can remember. He was very clinical and only cared about me answering his questions and didn't want to hear any extra information I might feel the need to share. He was distracted by his phone more than once, someone came in his office without knocking about a prescription that was inccorect and he wrote a letter to my surgeon while I sat there and didn't say what he was doing. His staff was incredibly rude too.
