  1. Dr. Kornoelje and the whole medical staff at Metro at Cascade. A family practice with same day appointments from birth to adults.

  2. Dr. App is wonderful! He cares about helping each patient and actually listens and trusts what you say (I truly appreciate this). He is easy to talk to and kids love him. If a specialist is needed, he finds the best no matter which health system they are with. He has been our family internist for years and wouldn’t go anywhere else. We are truly blessed to have him as our primary care physician. He’s very deserving of the #1 spot! Thank you Dr. App!

  3. #2 Zelasko is a great doctor, HOWEVER, the office staff isn’t the best. They need to be better on how to welcome their patient’s.
