Dr. Close took such excellent care of my daughter during her breast surgery. She explained the procedure and what to expect after. She called as soon as she received results. I would highly recommend. Thank you Dr. Close!

Dr. Close was personable and down to earth. I appreciated feeling comfortable at the appointment for a loved one. She spent time to answer questions and walked us up to the scheduler to get us squared away. Surgery is in November but I feel confident in choosing the right doctor.
