  • Dr. Tyler concluded that I had a sinus infection and prescribed an antibiotic which cleared the sinus infection. Dr. Tyler has been my physician for a couple of years as he was referred to me by one of my other doctors. In the past I have gone to him for a complete annual physical. Dr. Tyler's staff is warm and very friendly. Dr. Tyler is very nice and professional, and has his patients' best interests at heart. The only reason I indicated I would not hire again is because as of April 1, 2017, Dr. Tyler became a "concierge plan" doctor whereby one has to pay an annual fee to be his patient. Dr. Tyler offers a two tier plan - $500 annually for the basic service or $1,500 annually for premium service (after hours appointments, answering of your emails within the day, etc.). Unfortunately, with the cost of health care premiums and deductibles as it is, I don't believe one should also have to pay an additional annual fee to see a doctor on top of what it costs for office visit, tests, etc. For anyone who wants to enroll in his annual fee program, I definitely recommend Dr. Tyler.

  • Dr. McBride was one of three surgeons I interviewed before making the decision to have my second cervical spine surgery. I knew immediately he was the surgeon for me. His calm demeanor and apparent expertise put me at ease from the start. He thoroughly explained my problem and the surgical solution along with possible complications and side effects. Questions that arose between scheduling and surgery were answered in detail by a very prompt callback. The appliance from my first surgery twenty years ago had to be removed to make room for the new one. That proved to be a very difficult task for him, taking hours instead of the 10 minutes anticipated. To this day I am amazed at my lack of pain after this surgery…even with the complication. I was walking in my neighborhood the very next day when I got home from the hospital. I didn’t need pain pills for the surgery, but I have to admit it was difficult to sleep because of the neck brace. Now being fused from C3 through C7, I had a very difficult time finding the right pillow, but finally settled on the contour Tempurpedic. Most stores will allow you to try pillows for a few days and return them undamaged if necessary, thank goodness. No more pain down my left arm or neck and no more daily discogenic headaches. My life has improved immensely. I’m able to enjoy gardening again and so many simple tasks requiring bending over that I used to dread. Thank you Dr. McBride.

  • Dr. James Heaps is an extremely knowledgeable oncologist gynecologist. I was referred to him by my cousin who has been going to him for years and is extremely happy with him. I was going to another gynecologist who claimed that I needs to have surgery for a condition I was experiencing. I went to dr. heaps for a second opinion only to learn that the information I had received was completely inaccurate. He ended up taking care of my issue in a simple office visit and my issue has since been completely resolved. He is a knowledgeable doctor with a very friendly personality. The only I reason I didn't give him an A rating is because wait times can be up to 45 mins to an hour at times and it hard to get to see him because he's so busy. Otherwise, everything else is fantastic.

  • Once again, this doctor is extremely thorough and answered technical questions in layman's terms. He treats both myself and my wife. We are both extremely satisfied with his care. His staff is well trained, helpful and very competent. They reflect Dr. Frisch's deep concern for his patients.

  • I called for an appt. because my shoulder is giving me some pain. They had an opening in an hour! Dr. Hak diagnosed a torn rotator cuff. I was given a referral for an MRI and some PT, and scheduled a recheck appt in two weeks. I'm happy so far.

  • I called for a preventative check up and was so pleased. the staff was responsive and managed my expectations around cost and services very well. they were all engaged in what they were doing and seemed quite happy to be working there and with her patients. When I met Dr. Fallon, she was professional and curious. we spent time talking about what I was experiencing both physically and emotionally, what could be an issue after my bronchitis, and what she would be doing to figure it out. She uses the "hands on" method using her intellect, training and experience to figure things out, and does not just order out tests and read pieces of paper to figure it out. It is like a puzzle, with the answer to one question leading her down one or more paths of possibilities. When she did run some tests, she told me the results, why they matched her instincts having done a physical examination, and what she would like to see in terms of further follow up. I was so pleased with the visit and the results. She followed up on a blood test the next day by phone as she said she would, and, thankfully, nothing was wrong. I can say, had something been wrong, I would have felt blessed and in great hands to sort through the issues and the next steps with her. I would recommend her highly to anyone.

  • I have been a patient of Dr. Ben-Zur's for almost 2 years now. Having gone to a variety of doctors within the last 20+ years I can only say that if 30% of the US doctors were like Dr. Ben-Zur, ours would be a much healthier nation!
    Everything about their office screams and quot;Top Proand quot;: scheduling, appearance, appointments, equipment, medical and billing staff and, of course, The Man himself - and quot;Dr. Heartand quot;.
    I referred a few friends to Dr. Ben-Zur and he literally saved their lives by timely detecting and fixing their heart problems (installing stents).

  • He is super great! Very professional and he has a very caring personality and he is very personable. He is very realistic, yet very optimistic which I really appreciate! He knows firsthand about what insurance he is able to cover.

  • I made the appointment with Dr. Winters for my boss, who has an insane travel schedule and needed to have shots done before traveling to South Africa in early July. Dr. Winters' office was very accommodating in getting him in on such short notice. I had to juggle the time around a bit, and the office took it in stride. He has already referred another family to Dr. Winters for their shots before travel, so everything was great.

  • This is a wonderful practice; I'm so glad I found them and it is a huge difference between here and my old doctors (Pac Oaks). I see Peter Anderson who really knows his stuff and he is never rushed and extremely attentive. I highly recommend him.
    The office staff is extremely friendly and welcoming, as well.
