Best Explainer!

Dr. Degler has been a thorough and attentive doctor since I began to see him last year. It is remarkable that he spends so much time explaining a diagnosis, answering questions, and creating a plan to move forward. I feel respected and know that he is looking out for my best health. A phenomenal doctor!

Doctor Degler treats you like family !!

Doctor Degler went above and beyond when my husband was sick for over a year. He even called my house personally on a Sunday to see how he was doing ! He is compassionate, and always willing to listen. Spends a lot of time trying to help with what ever the problem is, we never felt rushed! I would highly recommend Doctor Degler to anyone looking for a Doctor they can rely on and trust !

Dr. Degler is very kind and he cares for the patients. The only disappointment is the scheduling staff that are very unfriendly and kind of rude.
