Excellent care, as always. Thank you all!
Dr. Olivera is very pleasant and easy to work with.
I had brought a book to read, since not sure how long I would wait. Please that all went smoothly and quickly
From the reception, to clinicians, and the provider it is always a calm and positive experience. I was nervous about getting a shot and the clinician was very nice an allowed me to squeeze her hand. The doctor was friendly and professional and was willing to listen to every concern and questions I had. It is no wonder that my parents an half of my dance studio come here :)
I missed my appointment the previous day somehow. The receptionist checked with the doctor and he decided to see me. I was very appreciative that he saw me on short notice along with his thoroughness of the examination and his assessment giving me multiple treatment alternatives.
Great doctor and staff!

Just met Dr. Olivera. He was very professional and thoroughly answered my questions.
He spent time with me and answered questions. Did not rush me in to get to next patient

I appreciate the ability to take my appointment of short notice. My problem was simply in-grown toe nail, nothing major!
Very pleased with Dr. Olivera. He’s now my new go-to podiatrist.
