Review for Dr. Fowler

The office is clean and organized. Dr. Wise is Compasionate and takes time to listen. The dog is a certified therapy dog, and I have seen the dog provide comfort to patients in the waiting room. Dr. Wise has been my doctor for over 30 years. I highly recommend him.

Review for Dr. Wise

Appreciated his personable touch. Provided options, encouraged to start at basics instead of insisting on surgery or major treatment plans. Appointment on time and can get in to appointment in reasonable amount of time.
