There was an urgency to see Dr. Farrow ASAP. The lady on the phone was great and got me in the next day. The office is so clean and smells good. From the front desk up to every person I came in contact with were so pleasant. Dr. Farrow said my best option potentially was oral surgery. She spoke with the surgeon and called me personally the following day. Answered every question I had. She made me feel like I was the only patient she has (which Im not.) Overall one of the best appt. Ive went to.
