Dr. Engler and her MA Benson Eldon are absolutely wonderful! It was my experience that both of them want to get to the root of the issue and they listen intently. The medical care I received far surpassed my high level of expectations. I wish I could give a rating higher than five stars, as they very much deserve it.

Dr. Summer Engler is one of the most pleasant positive doctors that I've known. Alaska is very fortunate to have a doctor, of her caliber. She is very knowledgeable, compassionate, organized, honest, and a good listener. I always look forward to appointments, with her. She always responds to questions, with sound advice. She has a positive demeanor and thoroughly goes over her patient's lab work.
