“Everyone is so nice at the practise. I have been going there for approximately 10 years now and even though I live a good 45 minutes away, I wouldn’t change doctors. Dr. Chi is amazing! She delivered both my sons and I had a great experience with her as well as with the other doctors at the practise.”
