Patient Comments (2)

Worked me in on the spot and did surgery on nxt biz day. Treated me like family, I had a # to call should I “get in trouble” over the weekend. Everything went as planned and I’m 2 days into recovering. I’d rather not have another surgery, ever, but I i do, this is where I’ll go.
