    Their care and concern for me was exceptional. They accommodated me by seeing me sooner than originally scheduled as I was in constant pain. Kept on top of my condition and even answered me on a Sunday when I had questions regarding my pain and what to do. He was quick to get me into to Dartmouth to have an ERCP done. Couldn't be happier with the care I received. The nurses, staff and anesthesiologist was very caring and attentive and me feel comfortable.
