"I've been coming to Dr. Agesen for years, he's the only doctor I trust with all my treatment needs. I had a procedure done last week and he followed up with me later that night and again the next day, just to make sure I was okay. He is by far the most compassionate doctor I've been to in a long time. The staff is also friendly and they always manage to squeeze me in last minute when I need to be seen right away. "
