Dr Ovella is an excellent blend of expertise, professionalism and friendliness that makes a visit with her always satisfying. She spends as much time with her patients as they feel they need, a refreshing difference from may doctors today.

I think what I like most about Dr. Ovella is that I never feel like she is rushing me to get to another patient. She sits there and explains everything to me until she knows that I fully understand. Another thing that is important for me is that if I have an emergency they always work me in. If they can't work me in with Dr. Ovella, they let me see the nurse practitioner. She is extremely competent and I feel very secure and having her treat me.

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.

What a great lady and caring doctor. I recently lost my husband ..and all her staff gave me the support and love I needed at a very difficult time. Thanks

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….
