Both my husband and I had been searching for a responsible and caring primary care doctor after we moved to Arizona from California last February. Dr. Ernst was our first try and both of us believe she was very good. She listened to us carefully and addressed each of our concerns carefully and properly. So, we have decided she is our best choice and worth more than our over-20-mile one-way trip to visit her in the future.
