Dr. Armistead is warm & caring and extremely thorough. He listens to your concerns, explains his diagnosis in layman terms & is very knowledgeable. His attention is solely on his patient & you never feel that he is rushing his exam. My first visit to him was after I was in the ER. He did a thorough work up & exam on me & did not order unnecessary tests. His staff is as courteous as he is. Appointment times are respected & adhered to. so wait times are at a minimum. I HIGHLY recommend him!

Dr. Armistead has been our Internal Medicine family doctor for well over 10 years now. We love him so much. He takes his time with you, explains things carefully, and is a physician who truly cares. He detected prostate cancer in me at age 49. He saved my life by finding, especially when I had no physical symptoms. You can't go wrong by visiting his practice. No wonder he has such high scores.
