Lauren Gorence is an amazing medical care provider and has always shown the absolute best care to all of my medical needs. The entire staff is beyond amazing, both Jessica's there are always extremely helpful and very caring. I changed my insurance provider to remain as a patient and paying the extra premiums is totally worth it. That alone should say a lot about this amazing clinic!

I have a long and very solid doctor / patient relationship with Lauren. She has always taken excellent care to answer my questions, and I feel she is my team mate when it comes to my health. I can share all concerns with her, without fear of judgement. With all of the patients she sees, she remembers so many details about my medical history and often reminds me when I'm having a health issue I've had in the past, and not from records,from her memory. I look forward to continuing my relationship with Lauren to work towards lasting health.
