My experience with Dr. Primer is always excellent because she is genuinely concerned with how I am doing.

I think Dr. Primer is absolutely fantastic. Not only did he offer perfect counsel and a thorough exam, but he remembered salient details about past medical events without even having to ask me about them, and he took those so conscientiously into account as he explored my current, much less complicated health issue. He is a model physician in every way, as far as I am concerned.

Dr. Primer is the best doctor I've ever had. He's polite and kind. I feel like I'm visiting a friend every time I see him because of his friendliness and great sense of humor. But he's also concerned about any issues I may have and he takes them seriously. He treats me with dignity and respect, but has no problem making jokes to relax me.
