Review for Dr. Charles Aswell III, MD

He is a nice, well-education physician who listens to his patients. My only problem with him is I believe he doesn't treat aggressively enough. I guess that could be due to the opiod epidemic.

I am very pleased with my visit and surgery performed by Dr. Templeton. He laid out my options, and allowed plenty of time to answer my questions. His staff was great, and I did not have a long wait to see him. My surgery went great. Thanks Dr. Templeton.

While Dr Garcia is a good physician, his office staff doesn’t do a good job in returning phone calls. Many times I haven’t even received a call back.

What a GREAT Physician!! Very kind and knowledgeable. After 5 years of suffering in pain and multiple doctors, It was Dr. Savoy who was able to give my wife a normal life again with his skills as a surgeon. Thank you Dr. Savoy.

Did not like his attitude. Kept saying quit playing doctor when I was asking questions. And I only asked maybe two questions because he came in and out like the wind.
