Dr. McClung painlessly excised squamous cell carcinoma on my skinny forearm, engaging in conversation that amused my husband and me and diverted our attention from cancer.

Review for Dr. Amis

Dr. Hardy was professional and so friendly. He evaluated the fracture in my wrist, but felt it was only a chip and was stable. No surgery needed! I was pleased. He also examined a trigger finger on the other hand. I was given a shot which hopefully in a few days will help with that problem, too.
