    I have used Dr. Susan Ovella, MD, as my primary physician for several years. During this time she has seen me for both routine and annual exams but also serious illness. When I was diagnosed with a brain tumor she personally contacted me to follow-up and guide me through difficult decisions. She has always been professional but also exhibits true care and concern for her patients. It gives me, my spouse and family great comfort to know a person of her character and dedication is caring for us.

    I have been seeing Dr. Ovella for a little over 2 years and every time I see her (whatever the reason) she gives me her undivided attention. I appreciate her caring, concerned, professional attitude and she is also compassionate in listening to me. She also has referred me to specialists, depending on the situation and all of those physicians are now my current physicians, i.e. Cardiologists, Hematologists, etc. I can't imagine going to anyone else….
