It has been great. I am still going there and I like the doctors. The doctor is a very smart lady. She does a good job. She opened my eyes up. She listens and learns a lot about the patient. She is fantastic, I need her. I go to her every week. I am medicated by Blue Cross. She counsels adults and children as well.
