I love this clinic! Dr Garreau is one of the best providers I have ever seen. She is personable but also professional. She listens carefully to my questions and concerns, and answers them thoroughly. She takes the time to make sure I have gotten all the information I need. She never seems distracted and our appointments never feel rushed, which I cannot say of most of the providers I've seen. I love seeing Dr Garreau! Even when the news is difficult (ie cancer prognosis), she always makes my day brighter. I highly recommend her.
