Review for Dr. Watt

Easy to set up appt. for procedure. Facility was nice and streamlined. Dr. Lapp gave me the information I needed prior to the procedure and talked with me about the findings after the procedure. Good experience!

Review for Dr. Blake

Does not listen or answer questions. Always ready to charge you extra and not let you know ahead of time at out of pocket expense. Have called a couple of times and 5 dys later still have not returned my call to refill my asthma medicine.
