Review for Dr. Schultz

I’ve been going to Dr Denton for over a decade and he’s awesome. Here’s why: he listens very well, he’s calm, he allows for questions and I seldom feel rushed. He also works as a partner with the patient. He’s not a dictator like some doctors, the decisions are shared.

Review for Dr. Adkins

I was a patient of Dr Benns for many years and still would be if she didn't become a "concierge" physician as of April and charge over 1K membership fee to continue as her patient. Before this I would have given a 5 star review, now unsure what 1K costs.
