I had been to 6 doctors before seeing Dr. Talavera. She diagnosed me on the first visit and was correct. She ran several test and called with the results the next day. She is good, caring, friendly and takes time to explain everything to me. I would highly recommend her to friends and family. Thank you Dr. Talavera for all you have done for me.
