How was your experience with the doctor?I found Dr. Valentine through a friend and I also had a great experience. Dr. Valentine listens to what you have to say and responds to your concerns. He referred me to a few dermatologists after my first visit and the front office made sure they accepted my insurance and helped me set up an appointment with one the same day. Unfortunately he no longer accepts my Oscar insurance but I'd recommend Dr. Valentine to anyone looking for a smart, friendly and thorough primary care doctor.

How was your experience with the doctor?The smoothest primary care visit I’ve ever had. I went in for a physical as I wasn’t comfortable with my previous doctor. I was greeted by a front desk employee, Shameka, who was really sweet - great start. I was called in before I could even sit down - even better. Natasha, the nurse assisting me, was great and friendly. Onto Dr. Valentine - very personable and informative. I felt very comfortable here. I’ll be back. Thank you all!

How was your experience with the doctor?Doctor Valentine was so kind and had such a warm energy. He made me feel very at comfortable which made it easy to discuss issues. Dr Valentine was very attentive and it never felt like he was rushing the appointment. There was a little hiccup with the time, but I always anticipate an additional 30 minutes at doctor's offices so I was okay with the wait. Highly recommended.

How was your experience with the doctor?Very unpleasant. The office staff were very very unprofessional and the patient flow wasn't monitored at all. Had to wait more than an hour despite having an appointment, checking in online AND reaching the office 15-20mins early. The nurse who was supposed to draw blood just kept me waiting for 45mins while she was having lunch without even informing me. After asking someone else, they told me that it wasn't even entered in the system. Very unprofessional work space.

How was your experience with the doctor?I'm always happy to see Dr Valentine. Unfortunately my health has taken a turn for the worse but Dr Valentine is working with me to get things right. He contacted me as soon as the tests came back and saw me the next day to get started ASAP. He sat with me and went through what was needed step by step. I can’t thank him enough. He is a most excellent doctor.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Valentine, his PA, and support staff were incredibly warm and professional. They treated you me like a human being and not just another patient. Going to the doctor can be a bit troubling at times, but they've really created a calming atmosphere. Dr. Valentine not only gave an initial diagnosis, he also ran-down a plan for the long term, if needed. It's completely clear that he wants to make you feel better.

How was your experience with the doctor?Less than an hour wait, office was very clean. One receptionist wasn't very helpful and tried to make me leave the office without the specific names of the doctors I was referred too, telling me they know who he likes to use, finally after insisting a third time, she went back and asked dr valentine and it turns out she was wrong! Excited to make him mine and my husbands pcp. He was great, I had a long list of concerns and he addressed them all and was very patient!

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Valentine was wonderful. I don't want my wait time review to cast a shadow on his practice - but it is good to note that you need time when you get there. Because the same deliberate time and attention that he's spending with someone else, he'll spend with you. He was patient in hearing out my concerns, asked me thoughtful questions about my issues, gave me detailed, qualified responses. He spoke to me like an adult who knew what she was talking about. Never condescending. He was courteous, friendly and understanding. I believe I've found my "home" as it pertains to finally securing an internist I can depend on. Beyond pleased with this decision and what it yielded.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Valentine was by far the most caring doctor I've ever visited with the best bedside manners. He went over everything during the physical and actually took the time to have a conversation. I would recommend him to anyone and will never visit an emergency clinic again unless I don't have a choice. I was concerned about getting a blood test and he made me feel completely comfortable and his assistant had it done in less than two minutes with nothing more than a pinch.

How was your experience with the doctor?He is a great doctor. Approachable and knowledgeable. However, I waited over 45 minutes to see the doctor. It was 35 minutes in the waiting room and then over 10 minutes in the room once the nurse practitioner took my vitals. I hadn't even seen the doctor by the time I had estimated I'd be out. Each time I go the wait time is longer and longer......
