  • May 22, 2024

    Nurse was especially helpful and friendly.

  • May 22, 2024

    This was an excellent experience of receiving care. I really liked both the medical assistant and the doctor. Kind, clear, knowledgeable communication.

  • May 22, 2024

    The only challenge I went to the wrong building first, just a few hundred feet away. And that would be my fault :)

  • May 22, 2024

    My appointment was a screening as it actually started and ended quickly after a thorough examination. Dr. V is very attentive and friendly. I had an excellent experience with him and the staff.

  • May 18, 2024

    Dr Viernes and his staff are the best.

  • May 18, 2024

    I need to be able to talk to the doctor and ask questions to understand. 9-10min is too short to see the doctor if he is talking the whole time.
