Dr Anton was excellent. I would not hesitate to return if further treatment was needed and I would highly recommend him to others.

Reviewed on Mar 1, 2021

This office is a rarity. This is the way I remember medical practices were in the past. My experience in offices before this one has left me with unanswered questions due to the stop watch approach to treating patients. The explanations during the procedure were explained. When Dr. Anton came in to review the tests he did this both through the screen and the tecnician's explanation. he took time to ask to review the screen if he wanted clarity. Every part of the screening and the recommended future procedure was carefully detailed to me. This should be the model that The CCF should be striving for in all departments.It is a norm that has been lost. I have complete trust in the office and in Dr. Anton .
