Have been seeing Dr Reese more than 20 yrs. This time was for hives. He is super attentive and caring. He gets to the root cause. I can usually see the Dr quickly. Wait time is about 10-15 min. Nurses are very efficient and kind. Office is clean and staff are quite Professional. Location at the heart of SF. Accessible by public transportation.
