my doctor is great

Josh is amazing! I can't believe what I've been missing for the past 20 years in regards to proper primary care. I am so happy I made the switch to see Josh. He is very compassionate and took a full hour to discuss my general health and specific items. He actually created a long term health plan which I've never had done before. He made me feel very reassured that he was highly invested in my health.

Joshua leads with kindness and works to understand the entire picture. Even with limited time, he is able to take in a lot of information and shows he's grasped it all. He'll ask specific questions that show his expertise, curiosity, and concern. He is truly one of the most caring and approachable care providers.
