5 out of 5 stars

The care that was provided by The nurses (Cindy, Felicia Ruth) and staff was exceptional. The entire staff was very friendly and made you feel welcome. We received a call from Felicia the next day to check on my husband to check his pain level and do a follow up. The surgery area from check in to check out was well organized, clean, and up to date. Thank you to all of you for what you do so well and everything beyond your normal duties.

The entire surgical team was amazing from intake, to the surgery itself, to my aftercare. They are kind, compassionate and they took their time to explain things in normal talk.

Every time I go there, everyone is so awesome and nice! The service is incredible, and the doctors are skilled. Yesterday, I went in for a urology appointment with Dr. Madjar. He was awesome and very professional, and made sure that I felt comfortable throughout the whole appointment. This place is absolutely incredible!
I had a sleep study to see if I need a cpap. I was concerned about having my mouth and nose covered. Tech was very helpful and did everything to make me comfortable. Since I live 1hr away, I wanted to get my lab work done. Registration and lab went above and beyond. Would recommend to anyone.
