"Dear Dr. Jarvis,
Thank you for your time, service and assistance on my road to recovering from my accident. Your compassion and kindness during my appointment were so appreciated."
"Your staff is very capable and lovely. The doctor we saw was outstanding in her competency and patient relations. She made my 93 year-old mother feel she was in good hands and very thoughtful in her diagnosis. I really cannot say enough about this doctor’s 'bedside' manner."
"Dr. Jarvis greatly assisted me with a last minute appointment. Her genuine authentic and organic TLC offered me relief of my irritable allergic reaction around my eyes. Grateful for her care and prescription."
"Dr. Politzer is the best Doctor that I have ever met. He is not only one of the most knowledgeable but more importantly he is incredibly empathetic and kind. I have a rare brain condition which causes intractable migraines and can affect my eyesight. Dr. Politzer and his team have always taken care of me and made me feel at ease at every visit. I could not recommend him highly enough. I feel extremely grateful to have him for my Doctor and the tirelessness way rest of the office staff have helped as well. I could not recommend him and his staff highly enough. Thank you for everything you have done for me. I would not ever want to see any other Doctor."
"Every time I've been into this office the entire staff has been phenomenal. I have a specific issue as a result of a traumatic brain injury and Dr Politzer doesn't look at me like I'm crazy. He actually went on to explain why I'm experiencing what I am and has offered answers and solutions that work for me. This is an extremely busy office, so exercise a bit of grace and it will all If a patient is late for an appointment yes it is going to throw off the doctor's schedule for the whole day.
Would you rather they rush through your appointment because someone before you was late just so they can get back on track? Or, if something comes up in one of your exams would you rather they skim over it rather than take the time to fully explain?"
"Dr Politzer is amazing. I had major vision issues after an accident. We got in to see him, he was incredibly familiar with the issue. He diagnosed and corrected my vision quickly and effectively. He’s very pleasant, kind and easy to speak with."
"Best Doctor I have ever been to. He was just amazing got right to what was wrong and fixed it. My vertigo and migraines are almost gone! They were all so kind and helpful and on time every time. I wish I could give the whole office more than five stars!"
