I've been visiting the Swampscott office but the Reading location is much more convenient for me. My first visit to Perico in Reading was great! Easy to find. Everyone was very personable, and professional and Dr. Hanratty is the BEST! (I'm sure all of the doctors are great but Dr. Hanratty is the doctor for me).
