"My experience at the Bel Air office for my first visit with my doctor went well as expected. I was grateful and well appreciated with Mrs Heather she was kind and very concern about my mental health and was on point with me making sure that I was diagnosed and made it possible that she had my script written for pick up at my pharmacy that I go to. She is a awesome person to talk with and a very good listener. I am totally satisfied with this clinic."
