When we moved to Oakland I was glad to have a group of docs so close to home. The last thing I wanted to do if I was sick with the flu or something was to drive into Cordova to see a physician.

They have been especially good about working me in for appointments when I have needed to be seen on short notice, and usually there is not a terrible wait in the lobby.

I have been seen on many, many occasions and have had mixed luck with treatment. The doctors there have occasionally mis-diagnosed minor conditions (strange rash? treated for dust mite allergy, fungal infection, scabies all at the same time. went to dermatologist and the nurse putting me in the room diagnosed it with a glance- went away without treatment. Dermatologist appalled that I was sent home to treat SCABIES on own when that was not even the problem!) and they always prescribe what, in my opinion, is too much medication. Go in with the sniffles? Antibiotic, antihistamine, nose spray the works. Every time I go in there they are prescribing nose spray- which by the way can become addicting.

Why do I keep going back? THey are close to home and if it is something that I feel confident they can diagnose and save me the trip (ear infection, sinus infection) I will go to them. Anything more signifigant (rash, heart palpitations, prolonged fever) I go to a doctor specializing in Internal Medicine in Cordova.

PROS: Location, work-in when needed
CONS: have been misdiagnosed for minor issues
