Review for Dr. Boyce

Dr. Samuel Carlson recently performed my right hip replacement and I am so thankful for his expert knowledge and surgical skill as I was up and about walking with ease and comfort soon after. It amazes me. Dr. Carlson took the time to carefully listen to me, explain my treatment options and answer...

Review for Dr. Collins

Dr. Fogelson is an excellent doctor. She is very knowledgeable and kind. She took care of my mother in the ER and she was very thorough and caring. I appreciated how much time she took talking with my mother and explaining all the results. She is one of the best ER doctors my mother has ever had.
