Review for Dr. Reeg

I came in today and was given an injection in my left shoulder. Everything went well. Dr. Skalak was very cordial and asked how my shoulder was doing. So far I am satisfied with his expertise.

Review for Dr. Skalak

Was seen in fairly timely manner. Dr. Hasty came in and apologized for the few minutes day. He was pleasant and very reassuring as he appeared to know my concerns re treatment. Felt that he will help me as I figure what is the best for me given my health issues.
