Dr. Borek is an excellent doctor. He had reviewed my son's record before coming in to see us. He gave us a diagnosis with full explanation verbally and a two page handout (on oral allergy syndrome) and he discussed treatment options for my son's allergies but let us decide how to proceed. And he allayed my fears of anaphylaxis from this condition or potential future bee sting. His nurse was astute as well, and provided comfort measures for other patients after allergy shots.

Excellent Doctor and staff I highly recommend them, they are simply the best. The Doctor takes the time to fully explain treatments and medicines thoroughly.
