Jessica Almaguer is my favorite health care provider. She is incredibly knowledgeable, she works hard to stay up-to-date on emerging health issues and technology, she is very respectful. She talks to me as an equal in managing my health, explaining health science as necessary, and she seems to listen to me with her whole heart and mind. She is compassionate with my feelings and yet simultaneously a strong advocate for my health, sometimes needing to coach me to make lifestyle changes I don't want to do. She brings an amazing combination of caring and science to help me be the most healthy person I can be.

I had not been seen in a couple of years. I had a check up and told the provider my concerns. She addressed them and got scripts ordered that i needed. This was a combo appointment with my 1 year old. She asked lots of questions for him and he got some shots. It was a great appointment. We love Jessica and her staff. They do a great job. She is the first doctor that i feel 100% comfortable talking about any issues with.
