a great experience
Aug 30, 2020
Doctor was kind and empathetic towards my needs. I did not feel rushed- she let me share an item I didn't put on my symptom list that I remembered while I talked. I have been fearful to visit a doctor since Covid (don't feel my problems are as dire or important as others). she made me feel comfortable about coming in for a visit or doing Zoom calls. Doctor was warm, patient, and I appreciated that.
Aug 30, 2020
a very clean environment. helpful and friendly staff
Aug 30, 2020
will definitely recommend
Aug 30, 2020

Kristen Vieira has been my advocate and she has worked extremely hard to get me the doctor I need for my brain aneurysm. It is such a comfort to know she is on my side. She is a blessing from God.

already gave my high opinion of Kristen. to other doctor on the area I was a nobody. but to Kristen I was someone who needed help and SHE IS THERE FOR ME.

Everyone I dealt with was extremely pleasant and made the experience very easy as a first time patient.

It was a first visit so there wasn't too much to do until more was known after getting some tests done, but I felt that she listened to everything I had to say and was very helpful answering the questions and concerns I did have. I was very happy with the visit overall.

The COVID precautions seemed good and I felt safe with the visit.

it was very good; however, I only had one appt. I will say that the check in and talking with Ms. Viera was very careful regarding the coronavirus. that I was very glad.
