Patient Comments (3)

I really enjoyed my visit to the Family Clinic. Everyone was very nice and helpful. I was not there for too long, but the doctor was not in a rush and he answered all of my questions I would definitely come back.

- The staff was unenthusiastic and I never felt that doctor was listening to me. - The prescription was incorrectly written on two separate occasions, causing issues with the pharmacy.
