"Dr. Nguy was awesome! This is my first time seeing her and she was attentive, thoughtful, thorough. The clinic as a whole was nice and check in was a smooth process. I was seen at my appointment time with no delays."- M.H. / ZocDoc / Sep 20, 2023
"I highly recommend Dr. Yao. He's knowledgeable, knows how to communicate effectively and is empathetic."- M.A. / Google / Sep 17, 2023
"I had a really poor experience with my previous primary care provider, a doctor that seemed to only care about money and coldly spending the bare minimum time with me just to get through our appointment and move onto the next one on their busy schedule. I am glad to have met Ms. Billingsley as she was everything my last doctor was not. She is kind and genuinely caring of my health, all while being extremely knowledgeable and patient with any questions or concerns I may have. I only wish I could have seen her sooner."- K.N. / Google / Sep 17, 2023
"Dr. Fullington is a thoroughly delightful, accomplished, & attentive practitioner. Not only was he mindful of my physical health, he was most compassionate about my mental well being . . . he actually LISTENED to me. What a refreshing experience!!"- K.S. / Healthgrades / Sep 15, 2023
"My doctors appointment today was with the nurse practitioner for the first time with this office. She was amazing. I love this office. My last doctor was ok but I communication with them was a challenge and they never responded to the portal even though I had to use it. These guys embrace new technology for communication but have kept a human connection which is a tough challenge. I cannot recommend this office more. I don’t think I have ever been as impressed with a medical office as I am with this place. I see Dr. Ennis but everyone I have met is great."- D.D. / Google / Sep 14, 2023
How Do Advanced Directives Work?
Your doctor will walk you through the process explaining the documents and what your options for care are. Though these are legally binding documents, they can always be updated if you've had a change in health. Advanced directives are the surest way to ensure your medical choices are respected and to help your family and loved ones feel more comfortable making decisions on your behalf. Advanced directives are one of the most crucial and important parts of whole healthcare.
