I am very happy with the service of Dr. Wees's office. I'm sad that he's leaving but totally understand. I do have to say that the gals upfront are very pleasant and my experience this week with Veronica was very nice. Thank you for all their services and their care.

Everything at this clinic was an excellent experience. I didn't have to wait whatsoever. The clinical staff was very friendly. The nurses were friendly. Dr. Wees was excellent physician. He has qualities that you don't see in physicians too much these days. He spent a great amount of time with me. He listened to all my concerns, answered all my questions. His exam was extremely thorough. He was extremely thorough overall. He pulled up x-rays and lab work from previous facilities which he didn't have to do. It took him extra time but he did it. He was very friendly, very courteous, respectful. I highly recommend him. That's about it. I highly recommend him. Thank you very much.
