Review for Dr. Cecil

Dr Goodin is an exceptional physician, along with his staff. He is caring, informative, and so helpful! I had a total knee replacement, and even my Physical Therapist remarked how good the incision looked and how well I did afterward. He's the best!

Review for Dr. Goodin

Dr. Eicher is a thorough and thoughtful physician. Although, as findings show, my disease is not her specialty, she took the time to listen, review my records and labs. I highly recommend her!

Review for Dr. Sweet

I saw Dr Kuiper for pain in my elbow. They had me in and out in about an hour, including having xrays taken and time to review/discuss diagnoses and treatment plan. Dr Kuiper is an excellent communicator and did a great job explaining my condition.
