"I was very impressed with the service. It had been four years since someone with special needs in my care had seen a physician. The Optimal Health staff were able to calm him down through one of his episodes and bring him inside to complete his visit. I was so amazed by the friendliness and care that Deshaun and the Optimal Health staff gave him."
