Excellent staff, they make you feel comfortable and they make you feel like you can ask them anything at all. Everything was done for me by Chante since I had trouble signing forms on my phone. She faxed everything to me to make it easier for me. The doctor phone call was amazing too, no pressure at all and you could ask anything without feeling "weird" about the situation. I would recommend this place to anyone!!!! They never make you feel like uncomfortable at all. Thank you to the whole office for an experience that I never thought I'd have!!!!!

I was referred to the green alternative and I have had such a great experience there! Anytime I had any problems, Chante was so quick to respond to me and resolve the issue. They took all the stress out of the application process. I'm very happy with my decision to call them, I highly recommend! Thanks Chante and Helen!!

My appt was on Thursday, aside from 5 pages of updating paperwork, I was pleasantly surprised by Dr Fortino. We discussed the MS diet and other natural ways to help me in my journey. Staff is pleasant which is why I left that place in Woodbury. Thanks Angelica, you are the best for referring me to this Doctor. 🥰

I had such a wonderful experience at The Green Alternative Doctor. Not only was the staff kind and knowledgeable, but they also really cared about my well being and made me feel like an actual person! This was definitely not the typical doctor patient interaction that is short, rushed, and confusing. The nurse there really took the time to thoroughly talk to me about the different products that adhere to my conditions and answered all of my questions to the point where I felt relaxed and confident with the care I was receiving. I would strongly recommend The Green Alternative Doctor based on how much they helped me and how professional and welcoming of an experience I had.
