I try to bring all my medications to carry me through the trip but several times I have needed Dr. Tim's advice and I call him no matter what time of day or night. One night very late I woke with terrible cramps in my legs and no matter what I did I could… See more
I met Dr. Real nearly 30 years ago as he was my parents physician. I needed a Primary Care doctor since we were new to the area and he kindly accepted me and my wife as patients.

Dr. Real has been my dr. for decades now. I wouldn't even consider having any other Internist along with the staff he has.

Dr. Real and his staff are wonderful. He is thorough and explains everything so I can understand it. I love that I never have a wait time and they always remind me to make my follow up apppontment. When I had my shoulder replacement surgery, he took time to come by the hospital and check on me!

Also thankful for Lucy and JoAnne.
They are the epitome of efficiency!
