Dr. Bector has been my young adult disabled daughter doctor for several years. We are very lucky to have found him. Dr. Bector is very thorough and compassionate in his care for our daughter. Even durning this COVID time he video chatted to make sure she was doing well and to see if we had any concerns. We wish morning doctors had Dr Bector’s wonderful care of our daughter.

Although I did not meet the doctor in person, he did make me feel comfortable through the video chat. He explained everything in a way that I understood him. I also wanted to mention that he took his time and did not rush through the session. His nurse Brandy who I spoke to a few times was also very kind and helpful!

In my mid-30’s when I was misdiagnosed by another nephrologist. I was terribly nervous to meet Dr Bector and get an accurate diagnosis. He was the right doctor for the job and is always pleasant and helpful. He is also respectful of his patient’s wishes and is not overly pushy.
