Review for Dr. Thompson

JS May 16 2021

Review for Dr. Rauta

He was more concerned about his lunch than my Dad who we took to the ER later that weekend. Sadly he did not come home.

Review for Dr. Field

The best Dr. I have ever gotten the privilege to know and have. He always listened to my concerns, and just made me feel reassured every time I saw him.

Review for Dr. Roswick

After 5 years of enduring his pill mill, I went out of state and six months later the pain and problems are next to nill. It's no wonder that NoDak has an opioid problem.

Better without his help. Mar 26 2021
