After changing jobs and medical insurance providers I was very nervous about “starting over”. Dr. Nikamal was amazing and really put me at ease. The entire office staff was awesome as well.

A great overall experience. Dr. Soufer listened to my needs and gave me a healthcare plan accordingly. Stall was kind and gentle. Would highly recommend.

I would highly recommend this place. They were very polite and efficient in getting me and my son a test with very short notice that we needed to get into another state. They also wrote a letter for me and that regard.

The greatest caring physician that I have ever known! Highly recommend if you are looking for a knowledgeable caring doctor to be next to you when needed. A lifesaver!

I got treated in Dr. Soufer’s office a few times and I just want to say that HE IS THE BEST FAMILY DOCTOR I EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE! So professional! I went to many other doctors that didn’t have a clue what’s wrong with me, then one of my friend suggested Dr. Soufer to me … and guess what … he solve the issue at the first treatment, hassle free. Highly recommended. Thank you very much Dr. Soufer for all your help — you are the best.

My entire family had to take COVID test. We were stressed out but the office staff were so patient, calming and understanding.

The nurse who did the test was so nice and gentle (I had some very nervous kids in my car) few days after the test she called and checked on us. She was very informative and helped us a lot to understand what we are dealing with and what we need to do. The office staff were always available for any questions we had even weeks after the test.

The thing that I loved was his direct manner. He was able to balance a qualified and comforting bedside manner with a very “from the hip” style of delivery. … When talking about life and death, there is no other way to present information, then to be direct and to the point. I’m happy to have a true regular medical doctor now.
