I was especially impressed with the thoroughness of all aspects of my experience with Ventre Medical. Despite the limitations of personal contact due to the pandemic, I never felt that my care was compromised. The staff was attentive in every way, and my experience with Dr. Caro was also thorough, enjoyable and comforting. Yes, 5 stars

I am always welcomed and treated professionally by all the staff. I want to say that if the staff becomes overwhelmed Dr. Joubert will come out and call me himself. It nice to see that they work as a team Doctors and Staff. It’s a real pleasure to visit this office everyone has a smile and in constant camaraderie thank you this was a great day.
