Patient Reviews
Mar 29, 2023
I had an appointment yesterday for an injury and the entire staff was so pleasant and accommodating. I received the most exceptional service I’ve ever experienced at a doctor’s office. Not since Ken Thomas has retired have I witnessed this at a medical facility. They really care and went so far out of their way to accommodate my schedule and specific needs. I can’t say enough about the quality of care and professionalism. Thank you
