The day of my appointment there was another patient in the office who was very agitated, yelling at staff, being verbally combative. I was very impressed with the level of professionalism and patience the staff was exhibiting throughout the entire incident. This man was yelling some very rude and offensive things to the staff, and all of them kept their cool and did their best to handle the situation. Kudos to them!

They took my temperature and my wives since she came into the room with me. All were wearing protective gear, very important during this virus.
May 5, 2020
Amazing doctor! It is very difficult to find a good endocrinologist in this area. I am very disappointed that she is leaving.
May 2, 2020
Unfortunately Dr. V is leaving end of June. Why? She is excellent and our community needs her. I am very disappointed . Replacing her with a PA? NO My experience with PA and NP are they are very poor at diagnositic work. I will not use one.
May 2, 2020
If you replace Dr. V with a PA I will not recommend. I won't be able to because she will be gone!
Apr 29, 2020
The present staff is excellent. My problem is with FCPP management. I finally found a good office and doctor to go to and the office is being closed. So far you have changed doctors on multiple occasions and now your shutting the office down. I really don't know if I will ever support FCPP or want to do business with that network If anyone should be surveyed it's the FCPP management
Apr 26, 2020
the doctor never asked me how I was sleeping, eating, how I felt. nothing. she would not look at articles that I brought about alternative medicine for Hashimoto disease. very rigid and not warm at all. staff in the waiting were super nice and helpful and friendly.
Apr 26, 2020
