This staff is excellent. Professional and kind. I really need some help with Neurology, and wish I could get the same quality care from the expert I need right now.

I have been hesitant to seek medical care because of judgement from doctors, nurses or staff, that I have experienced in other facilities. My experience at this appointment was quite the opposite. I feel supported and encouraged with the attention and follow up that I have received. I no longer will dread seeking medical help. Tara Pfaff and her staff are the best.

The only problem is he distance from my house to the office. I think this is handled now with Medicare Medical Transport.

She listens to her patients and does not make you feel bad about anything. I have had prior ones that I ended up not going to because of how they made me feel. I really like Tara

Didn't get to talk to her about what I wanted to, as she was concerned about my dizziness and sent me to hospital

Tara is a kind and compassionate NP. She never makes you feel rushed and cares about your well-being.

Tara is an awesome provider who looks into my health issues and abnormal test results deeply. By doing so, she was responsible for my liver disease getting diagnosed even though my liver enzymes went back into the normal range.

  Aug 19, 2022
She spoke to fast to hear. I am Very deaf and tried to explain that to her. Plus with the masks he can't read lips.

Tara is very friendly and "down to earth"

  Aug 4, 2022
I had an appointment for 720 and was sent an text to arrive @ 710. I did & the door was locked. I waited until 715 and a receptionist finally came to let me in. She did not look at or greet me but turned & walked away. Another person behind the desk sat looking at her computer & finally waited on me. No smile NOT FRIENDLY! I was first patient of the day & seen at 745. Tara and med techs are great. Front desk staff are aloof, uninterested and unfriendly.

  Jul 8, 2022
The Provider was very good but my Primary Provider was off for the day and she is the one I would prefer to see. No issue either way both are very kind and thoughtful and good at that profession.

  Jul 7, 2022
The only negative was the phone system to even try to make an appointment.I think staff should call their number and try to get in to do something simple, like make an appointment. This system was ridiculous.

  Jun 30, 2022
I was in between drs. it was almost a 3 month wait to see her. Well worth the wait. Love her!

  Jun 24, 2022
This was a new patient visit. My care was great. What was not great was the many months that it took to get the appointment. The clinic wouldn't see me for care until I had a new patient appt and said to go to urgent care. My health care issue wasn't urgent. I wanted consistency in my care but couldn't be seen by the provider that I asked for. I just switched from Kaiser.
