"The process to schedule an appointment was very easy and the scheduler was very courteous and friendly. She was so kind to me and that made all the difference for me. My visit with Catherine was very nice. She asked several questions to determine my status and was familiar with my health which assured me that she'd reviewed my medical record ahead of time."

"First interaction with her. She was thorough in every respect. She took considerable time to analyze my symptoms, study my history and determine a course of action which, then, alleviated my symptoms (moderate sinusitis). I would be happy to deal her again."
