I have been going to Dr Ovalle for the past 10+ yrs. He converted to a Concierge Servive approximately 5 yrs ago..I converted to his new personalized health service immediately. Why? Because he is The Best Physician i’ve ever had! He’s up to date on all health issues, & has a Great Team of Specialists, who he has referred both myself, & my wife. Plus, he’s assisted by a teriffic, & knowledgable group on office assists!

Dr. Ovalle and his staff are caring, insightful and overall just wonderful, not only as medical professionals but as individuals. He and his staff have helped my family through many difficult medical challenges recently. My son and I are both patients currently and I really don't want to ever have us see any one else besides Dr. Ovalle. He has become our friend as well as our physician and I feel truly blessed to have him looking out for our welfare.

Dr. Ovalle has been our family Internist for close to 10 years. Six and a half years ago he diagnosed my husband's brain cancer soon enough for him to receive treatment that allowed him to live until two months ago. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this man. He is truly the definition of what a physician should be. Thank you Dr. Ovalle for saving my husband's life and allowing me to spend the past 6 1/2 years with the love of my life.

Not great at diagnosing - does a lot of referrals. Seems more interested in his concierge patients that have to pay thousands $ per year.
