Dr. Fields assessed my meniscus tear immediately. He did a fine job on the surgery. I was up walking the same night. Darn the migraine. I do wish he wasn't involved with AOC.

Review for Dr. John Dorris III, MD

I have no problems with Dr. McCutchen. However, her assistant is so rude that I found myself dreading calling her office for help. That is not good when you have colitis and have spent days in the hospital with C-Diff. I changed doctors today.
