Besides the fact that Dr Phyllis is a senior doctor with great expertise, her humbleness and care towards a patient goes above and beyond anyone's expectations. She's not only a great physician, She's an honorable person as well!

Another doctor sent me to Dr. August because my blood pressure appeared to be high....she took a detailed look at the medications I was taking and asked about my diet and lifestyle. I was totally at ease so much so, that my blood pressure, when taken twice, was normal.
