It is sooooo refreshing to have Dr. Cara Culmer as my Primary Care Physician. Dr. Culmer really listens to me in a calm knowing manner. She is always professional, yet cordial and confident. I don't feel like I'm imposing on her by asking questions. I'd refer her to anyone because she's just that wonderful and professional.
