March 1, 2012 we closed our Oakland office after 35 years. We want to thank our many patients who have made the short drive to Lafayette; they are pleased with the comfort, level of service, and PARKING in Lafayette. Thanks to all of you who have taken the time to respond to HealthGrades, please continue to provide feedback so we can continue to improve.
