Absolutely a great place for medical care. Fast paced office with no wait time. It is like being at a hospital emergency room without the high priced bill or the unreal time to be seen by a doctor.

I’ve been suffering from allergies for the last several weeks and nothing that has worked in the past has worked this time. As a last resort I went to Advanced Medical Care a few days ago. The staff was great and Dr. Sanchez actually took the time to talk to me and understand what my problem was and what had, and had not worked so far. He even helped me find a way to save money on my prescription. After a couple days of taking my new prescription and doing a few other things Dr Sanchez suggested I’m feeling better than I have in a long time. I’ll definitely use Advanced Medical Care again, but this time I won’t wait so long.
