I have been going to this office for over 15 years! The staff is extremely knowledgeable Alex, Chanel, Tanya and Robyn. I always get my full physical exams and paperwork done right away and without a hassle. His office is old school not computerized, that's fine with me, but I still feel at ease with the services. You will never get a doctor that can tell whats wrong with you right away like my Dr Franco. The comments I've seen on here undermine that they are going to a doctors office.
