Pam is amazing!

August 31, 2016

Pam Phares is one of the best care providers I have ever known. She's so positive and encouraging.

August 03, 2016

I am so impressed with Dr Phares. She seems to be truly interested in her patients and their care. She is one of the few doctors that have ever treated me with true care and sincerity.

August 02, 2016

Pamela was great! She made me feel comfortable and explained things very well. She was truly interested in me and improving my health. I never felt like she was here because it was her job and did not feel like she rushed through the appointment. She took her time to get to know me and my habits so she could come up with a plan that would work for me. I look forward to working with her in the future.

July 31, 2016

The experience was pretty positive I think my only complaint would be that they were behind schedule the particular day I visited.

July 31, 2016

Pam was professional and compassionate and discussed the medical issues clearly and plainly.

June 24, 2016

Pam was exceptional! She visited with me, which is rare! She made me feel comfortable and safe!

June 23, 2016

really liked the fact that she listened to me and my concerns about my diabetes

June 22, 2016

All issues and concerns were addressed. I feel like I was listened to. The provider was up front and told me that it wouldn't be easy to do what she wanted me to do, but I was left feeling motivated to do what she suggested.

May 24, 2016

I LOVE Pam and her obvious interest in her patients.

May 19, 2016

It was nice to finally know what might be going on with me. Such a relief to finally get some answers.

May 04, 2016

Pam is so caring. I hadn't seen her for months due to surgeries. when she walked in she walked right up to me and gave me a hug. that was priceless. she explains everything to me and is so encouraging.

May 02, 2016

Ms Phares took over an hour with me - I was very surprised. She was very complete - went over everything and I was very happy with her detail. I thought it would be a waste of time - it WAS NOT! It was excellent!!

May 02, 2016

Pam is awesome!

May 01, 2016

very supportive and motivating

March 14, 2016

I understand that most people present typical symptoms of my disease, and I don't blame the doctor for assuming that I fit into that norm. But since I live with my disease and am very familiar with my body/symptoms, I fee like I might be different from the norm. I would like a doctor to at least consider the possibility that I might be an outlier.

March 07, 2016

Pam is great. I've already recommended her and the program to a couple of people, one of which is now also seeing Pam!

February 21, 2016

Pam was very knowledgeable and helpful, and made me feel she had time for all my questions.

November 20, 2015

For me, Pam Phares is exceptional in her care and professionalism

October 05, 2015

I learned alot from the Dr, she was very thorough with her explanations and I felt like she really cared about me.

September 15, 2015

I was very impressed with my provider. My only regret is not starting this program a year ago when i was still in the pre-diabetic phase of my life.

September 08, 2015

Pam is a great provider, her caring and friendly manner makes talking to her very easy. It's great to have a provider as knowledgeable as she is.

August 13, 2015

It was way too much information for one visit. Overwhelming and depressing! I went home with a long list of supplements and prescriptions. I learned at the pharmacy how much it was going to cost me and once again I was overwhelmed and depressed. I am sure these were issues that needed to be dealt with but it was too much at once and made me not want to do any of it.

July 15, 2015

I have already recommended her to my Sister.
