Review for Dr. Thomas

Dr. Davis is caring, polite and very professional when it came to my foot problem. She explained to me why I am having my foot pain issues and made sure I understood. She is a really great doctor to talk to and she genuinely listens to you. I highly recommend her.

Review for Dr. Logan

Worst experience I have ever had with a physician. Dr. McIntosh was dismissive of my needs from the moment I walked in the ER. I left with no relief and in tears.
