Review for Dr. Stutts

Very rude and is a awful doctor. I would not recommend her to anyone. I would discourage anyone from making the mistake of going to see her.

Review for Dr. Pickett

Dr. Telang is so nice and listens to what I need to tell him so he can treat me. He has gotten me out of pain I have been living with way too long. Too many doctors just don’t listen.
