Review for Dr. Willis

Dr. Propato is awesome. She truly cares about each patient who comes through her door. When she moved I knew it would be a distance for me to drive but she is well worth it. I would not trust my feet to anyone else. Also Kim is the perfect assistant for her. I am lucky to be her patient.

Dot O’Callaghan Mar 20 2020

I’ve been coming to this office for a long time.. I used to really like it. Over the last 5 years or so.. the receptionists and billing have such bad attitudes!! I feel like I’m on the defense whenever I speak to them. I’m being very polite, why the attitude? Don’t take anger out on patients. ????
