Patient Comments (1)
in Rochester, NH |
Br. Blitzer and the entire staff at Seacoast Orthopedics were absolutely excellent. I was seen the same day I called for an appointment and within the same week had a follow up appointment and a recommendation and conclusion to my treatment. I cannot say enough how well I was treated and the excellent care I was given.
