About



I understand that when you need to see your doctor, you don't want to wait 1 to 2 months for an appointment. My office always has same day appointments available for acute illnesses. My staff and I always work hard to ensure that your waiting time in the office is minimal. I do see many walk-in patients, but as I have other duties, please try to call for my availability before you come.
