Had to wait a little for Dr. Mait to come examine me, and when he did, I found out why! He spends as much time as necessary answering any and all questions you might have and really makes you feel like he cares. Thank you Dr. Mait for fixing my shoulder!!! I feel 20 years younger!

I've been a patient with Dr. Walters since 2007. She is caring and takes her time with every patient. She returns phone calls, even late at night when the situation warrants it. I would never switch physicians from her.

Dr. Gaudin took the time to review my 86 year old father's condition, I'd say we had 15-30 minutes on each visit. His ability to explain a medical condition to layman was excellent. The non surgery treatment path we decided on worked 100% thank God. Our overall experience was very positive.

I’ve had occasion to see Dr. Sood twice; I was tremendously impressed both times, both with his knowledge and his “bedside” manner. He discovered and solved a problem that I was having. He’s a very good “listener”. In all, I have nothing but the highest regard for him.
