What patients are saying.

I love this provider, she is kind, excited to answer any questions, and always extremely helpful!

Totally beyond great experience. He explained everything in a relatable manner and was very clear, precise, and helpful. He showed understanding and respect for my concerns.

I have already recommended Dr. Varhade to a friend and would not hesitate to inform other friends.

Dr. Szeto has demonstrated deep compassion for me and things that I have gone through over the years. She truly cares about my well-being and is very proactive.

Amazing experience! By far the best. Very knowledgeable, helpful in my decision making, showed the utmost respect and care for my concerns. Dr. Goldberg is top notch!

Dr. Goldberg takes the time to explain things and answer questions. He is extremely kind. I really appreciate that he calls with results from tests quickly.

The reason for my visit was a bit embarrassing and Dr. Ofer was very kind and put me at ease immediately.

Very happy with Dr. Ofer. He is supportive and positive. Just enough time spent with me and he shows empathy.

Dr. Szeto is a consummate professional and I highly recommend her to all my friends.
