I was in extreme pain and couldn't move my arm, my appointment was for 8:10 and I was in a room at 8:11. Went to x-ray within 10 minutes and did not have to wait long for that either. Staff was very nice and Dr. Phillips was wonderful!

This made my son feel very comfortable and he was quick to open up about what...
