WakeMed Patient - February 2020

I liked the small office that was not packed with people waiting. The front staff welcomed me and made me feel comfortable. There was not a long wait time which was great. My husband plans to start his care at this same office.


WakeMed Patient - February 2020

Dr. K was amazing! He even alerted me to an issue that I did not come in for, my son''s tube is still in his ear and he was not at the doctor due to any ear issues. Many other doctors missed this. After coming in I decided to make Dr. K Evan''s primary physician and I don''t take this decision lightly as Evan previously had the same PCP since birth.


WakeMed Patient - January 2020

Quick appointment, personalized care and collaborative.


WakeMed Patient - January 2020

Dr. KC was very thorough in his examination including asking plenty of questions to make a good plan for treatment. What really put his service over the top was the follow up care. He co texted me at home to see if I had improved and called in another prescription for me. I think he is an excellent Dr. and it''s too bad he was providing temporary coverage as I would see him again as my Dr. if he worked full time at the location where I live. He is extremely personable and intelligent.
