    Dr. Devault and his medical assistant, Ashley, are so wonderful. They are always nice and always do everything they can to help me. I have seen them interacting with other patients and everyone seems to love them. They seem to make a great duo and work so well together, it's like Ashley can read his mind. I would never consider another ortho dr!
