Dr Bouvier is an amazing physician. His technicians are very competent and are very knowledgeable. There may be a bit of a wait, but you get your time with him, as he gives the best of care. And Sarah, is so helpful in booking and rescheduling, as i had to reschedule. Best experience.

Dr. Bouvier is amazing. Very competent, friendly and trustworthy. His secretary, Sarah, is the complete opposite. If you can put up with her, I would highly recommend Dr Bouvier.
