I take my dad to many doctors appts. Dr Athar and her staff are really excellent with elderly people. She takes time and does not simply blow him off due to his age. I really appreciate that.

Very satisfied. Early morning appointment, but everyone was efficient, pleasant and on time. My provider is thorough, answered all of my questions, was not time-conscious - didn't appear rushed or in a hurry to "get me out the door - and was very informative.
