Ames, IA |
I have been very happy with Dr. Carleton her nurse Cindy. Always find time to see me when I need to be seen, and have been nothing but helpful and knowledgeable. Wait times are minimal, and lots of one-on-one feedback with Dr. Carleton - I never feel rushed or like she is distracted when she's with me. I highly recommend her.
