What a great place! With all the stress of covid-19 and with how hard all the doctors and nurses have been working there was not a worker that was not absolutely refreshingly and pleasant. I normally don't do well in any type of doctors office or in hospital because it causes me stress and panic but it was a comfort and very positive visit. I felt very important and that was as well a great comfort!

Dr Altaus is very professional yet talks to me on a level that I can understand. He always takes his time to go over any and all options for my issues. I highly recommend him.

Got an appointment 2 hours after I called. Had fallen on the ice and injured my collarbone. He was very thorough in diagnosing the extent of my injury. He always explains everything in a language that the lay person can understand. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Phisitkul is very skilled and he made my surgery experience very positive. Minimal invasive in 6 weeks is the best outcome. His staff is very professional to work with. I have recommended him many times.
