Dr. Ovella is very thorough and listens to your issues as you see them. Another thing that I like is that she doesn't overbook her appts. You never have to wait to see her more than 15 minutes.

Dr. Ovella is one of THE best doctors I have had in my 67 yrs. She’s extremely through in her assessments . She doesn’t jump the gun with recommending any specialist until she has done all that she could to diagnose or find the problem. She’s damn good at what she does not to mention she takes all the time needed to check you out, and answer whatever questions you may have. She NEVER rushes you no matter how many patients she has. She provides her undivided attention to you when she’s in the room with you. If you have to call for anything, her nurse is always back with you that same day. I just can’t say enough about her trustworthiness and I put my life in her hands. It’s just a shame that ALL doctors are not like her. They can take a few lessons from her.

A+ Dr. Ovella takes the time and listens carefully to what my health concerns are and takes the time in detail to review my test results. Also, every referral Dr Ovella has sent me to has been just as professional and helpful including onsite staff.

I went for my annual checkup. My weight was up but more concerning was my blood pressure was elevated. Dr. Ovella knew of the stress I have been experiencing for the past few years and had my blood pressure retested at the end of the appointment and a week later. The later checks on my blood pressure put me back into the upper normal range. She is very thorough and thoughtful in her examination. I have recommended and she now takes care of my immediate family.
