    Love this practice! The staff is always knowledgeable, very friendly, and as accommodating as possible. The office is always immaculate and not to mention FUN for the kids, with the "movie theater", video games, and all of the fun contests they always have. Dr. Hicks and Dr. McMurphy both are wonderful and are very good at explaining in detail about treatment, you'll never leave the office feeling confused about treatment options or plans.

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
