Reviews

Francesca Miller

We were from out state visiting and my baby got acutely sick on our trip. They took us in right away and got her diagnosis. They were so accommodating helping us find the right pharmacy since we didn’t know of any since we don’t live here and helped find the best medication that could suite our needs with travel. Everyone from the front desk, nurse, and doctor treated us so well.

Lauren Richie

Fast, friendly and efficient! Although I didn’t make an online appointment, the wait was not very long. The facilities were clean and spacious. And the staff here are very friendly yet professional. I was in and out and on my way to feeling better the next day. Would certainly go back if needed. 

Katie Namoff

They are always super friendly and efficient at this location! I fainted in their lobby today, and they were so sweet to me. They made the scary experience a lot better. I highly recommend this location!
