    Dr. Shalmi made me feel at ease from the start. He took his time to get to know me and my health concerns. It was easy to get an appointment and the wait time in the office was very reasonable. The staff was welcoming and very efficient.

    Like staff (M.D.s as well as aids): Relatively prompt, seem to familiarize themselves with my case; good at hygiene and pain management
