Excellent physical exams and thorough. Especially the NP that had been there many years. Waiting time is expected, but worth the wait.

Review for Dr. Unks

There was a big communication issue. I was told over the phone that three teeth were approved for extraction. When I arrived I was informed that only one tooth was approved. Then they misinformed me about the anesthesia, which he inserted intravenously without cleaning with alcohol and did NOT wear...
