I’ve been a patient of Dr Fackovec for over 10 years. He is always friendly and explains everything so I understand it. He never tries to pressure any kind of unneccessary medication, and listens to my concerns

The office is downtown, so be prepared to find and pay for parking. The doctors office that I was in during my routine exam was filthy, with visible dirt and hair on the floor. I had to follow up with them two of the three times to received documents I requested. The doctor called to explain some blood work results over the phone- The conversation was very rushed and did not make sense. When I filled out the prelim paperwork, they gave me a questionnaire. A few weeks later I was billed for it!

My family has been with him for years!!! He really takes his time and listens to what you are saying. He will lead you in the write direction if something is needed. His staff has always been great with us. Even squeeze an appointment in when I really needed to talk with Dr Fackovec. Will never go anywhere else.

Dr. Fackovec has been my primary care physician for the past 25+ years. He is a terrific listener and is always on point. He does not rush to judgment or course of action; he considers and orders tests thoughtfully after explaining his thoughts on all issues and potential treatments. He has broad contacts and specialists for recommendations, surgeries and therapies. His office staff is friendly and helps schedule convenient appointments.
