My experience has been amazing. Dr. Brugger is so knowledgeable. She always explains every detail and makes sure you understand what is going on. We have seen Health+ a lot since October and the whole experience has been great and we felt taken care of. Also the free medications are a huge bonus. They actually care about you.
