Dr. Takem and his staff are simply AMAZING!! The office is very clean and spa-like. All modern equipment. He took the time to listen to all of my health concerns and took his time to explain his recommendations and prescriptions. For any one looking for high quality health care where you don't feel like another number, I highly recommend Dr. Takem and staff.
