Northstar Healthcare ReviewsLEAVE REVIEW FOR BUSINESS
If this is where you are getting your COVID shot, beware. I got my both shots at this clinic. I came to get Pfizer of what I notified the staff both times I came. Regardless of my notifying them and of them having kept my record after the first shot - Pfizer, the second dose they gave me was Moderna. As of today, this is not advised (*is not allowed) by CDC. (My vaccination card stated I got two doses of Pfizer, although, the official vaccination data that my PCP has access to states I got one shot of Pfizer and one shot of Moderna). Lesson learned. Ask a nurse to always show you the info about the vaccine (the name and the expiration date) of the vaccine they're about to inject you with. (The worst part is that when we confronted the clinic about what happened, they tried covering it up and didn't admit they made a mistake). Glad everything I feel ok and didn't have a major reaction to either of the shots.
Just be careful.

I am absolutely excited to have Northstar Healthcare, and especially Maurice Brownlee, in my life. The words that come to mind to help explain my enthusiasm are 'competent', 'immediate', and 'kind.' Dr. Brownlee, or Mo as he instructed me to call him, clearly understands medical care. He knew both 'what' he was seeing in terms of my medical needs and 'who' he was seeing in terms of me as a person. He knew how to talk to me. And when he wasn't sure, he asked respectfully. I felt valuable and empowered. He and his colleagues are more than competent. And immediate. The positive outcomes were immediate-from immediately being vaccinated for several things, to immediately receiving medication that might immediately help, to immediately scheduling me for a follow up.
And above all, everyone's kindness was genuine.
I have been a patient of this great medical establishment for 17 years.
I have always been treated extremely well.
The whole staff have and always do go above and beyond not only for me but other patients as well.
I have worked customer service my whole life and everyone at Northstar goes above what anyone would expect.
Dr. Maurice Brownley really does go the extra mile for his patients as well.
The office staff is wonderful as for the doctors ... the follow up is pretty bad. You have to call and ask for your lab reports and then the Dr. Gonzales just expects his patients to read them and know whats going on. I have being seeing him for 5 years now and unfortunately I feel like im very committed but the patient dr relationship is non-exsistant. My partner who died of cancer in 2015 was also a patient of dr gonzales and he never once sent his condolences even tho we went to appointments together for years and he obviously knew we were together.
The sad thing is i actually always speak highly of this clinic even tho im treated poorly... until
