My daughter and I had appointments and was very pleased with the care by Dr. Stephen and her medical assistant. Dr. Stephen explained a lot of information to us and seemed to be very thorough and did not seem to be rushed even though she was very busy.

Dr Stephen’s was very knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable..... she was professional and very nice. The staff was very friendly also.... but you will have a bit of a wait past your appointment time but that is my only complaint.
