"Strip mall urgent care and conglomerate medical group primary care is often volume-driven and impersonal, with long wait times. I’m a doctor who will take the time to listen to your concerns and partner with you for years to come.  I’ll likewise get to know you as a neighbor and friend here in our wonderful community!" Dr. S
