The doctor was very attentive to my questions and concerns very patient. I was really impressed with her demeanor and felt really good that she was the doctor.

Dr. Almazan is very personable and explains things in terms that you understand as not being a medical professional and words that you can understand. So she is amazing and so is all of her staff that we have encountered and we will continue to see her until we don't have to anymore. So we just love her. Thank you.

My child and I arrived a few minutes late for our appointment. I got off the wrong exit on the highway, rushed in, and then having our temperature checked, making sure we wore our masks took a few more minutes. However, we were seen immediately with the utmost professionalism. She is a great provider. We definitely we already scheduled our 6 month appointment for a check up to go over everything again. I would definitely recommend her.
