I was seen for diabetic foot care. I was given a lot of information on how to care for my feet as a diabetic. Dr. Oji was easy to talk too, answered all my questions. The Staff are very welcoming and very helpful. my overall experience was great, best office I've ever been too. I will definitely be recommending them to my family and friends.
