What I love about Arbor is that we have the most professional and caring staff one could ever work with; a true family. We hope you find it that way, too.”

Everyone was so kind and understanding. I was running late, as I got lost. When I finally did arrive, I could not find a parking spot. I called ahead and explained the problem. I begged them not to reschedule. Fortunately, I had filled out the patient portal the day before on my laptop. When I finally saw the doctor (Alvarez) he was so pleasant and we had a nice chat. We reviewed my medications, etc., and he made some suggestions for further testing for my osteoporosis, The exam went well - no problems, thank God.
