Hard to find anything good to say about our experience. The Dr spent about 10 minutes with us and ordered an MRI. Receptionist said 7-10 days for approval, 10 days we called back, they hadn't talked to our insurance yet, there's people ahead of us. Meanwhile my wife had been in the ER twice with worsening conditions. The lack of concern is frightening given we are dealing with a potentially life threatening condition, still no call. Maybe ok if you have a cold, but don't go there if your sick.

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. ERSTINE. He treated me for a deviated septum & other related issues & I had great success. He was very professional & would spend as much time with me as was needed to answer all my questions & concerns. I was very sad, indeed, when he made the difficult decision to move to Las Cruces, NM to continue his medical career. Our loss was certainly their gain. I wish him all the best in his new practice. I will miss his staff & his nurse very much, too.
