“Dr. Oganesian is absolutely amazing and so is every single person who works at his office. They are all incredibly kind, caring, warm, down to earth, friendly, compassionate, and genuinely concerned about each individual patient. They actually take you on time and don’t leave you waiting, they don’t try to sell you on surgery if you don’t need it, and they take the time to explain everything to you. I wish all doctors offices were this exceptional. I can’t recommend this place enough.”
