This might sound a bit odd, but I think you’ll understand. I love going to this clinic. Dr Wernli and her nurses are so warm and friendly that you feel like you’re all best friends and you want to say, “Where are we going for lunch?” Professionally, they are thorough and make sure you understand what they’re talking about. I can’t recommend this clinic or this doctor enough.

Dr. Wernli was very comforting and honest. I felt comfortable sharing with her and felt that I was being actively listened to. However, I would have liked to hear about more options on prescriptions in various costs. $$$
