I like this one from the minute my girl friend Sarah told me about it!!! I liked it even more on1/27/20 when I personally walked in is a very carefree great vibe kinda of place and luv that!! The receptionist was super helpful and assisted me in selecting the best oils for me, thank you so much🙏🙏🙏. My second visit was with NP Villarreal and I was very pleased with her. She has excellent bedside manners!! She listens to your concerns and is very informative and knowledgeable. We were able to squeeze in a lot in a small time frame visit. That would probably be one of my recommendations that first visit patient be given a longer time visit like an hour as it takes time to get to know one another as patient/NP or doctor and time is essential part of this process!!! I’m looking forward to continuing my physical, emotional and mental wellness with Innovative!!!
