in Hemphill, Texas |
Dr. Tummala and his staff are absolutely outstanding. Always greeted us with a smile and warm handshake. Abundantly clear that the patient and family were of utmost importance and they all expressed genuine care and concern for us. It was a humbling experience dealing with the doctor, his staff, aid the Willis-Knighton staff that these people really made us feel as we were the most important people they were caring for!!!
