      What a coot this man can't remember anything about you and the treatment plans. Every month I had trouble with getting my prescription refill and the nurse is very rude. Forget about getting an appointment he's booked out almost 9 months in advance and if you need to talk to him abt anything forget about it.

      I have suffered for 15 yrs with Fibromyalgia and Migraines. Dr Settle was the first doctor to really listen to me. He is professional and so very kind. He understands what pain can do to you and he will find a solution every time. Thank you Dr. Settle for giving me my life back. ~ Suzanne Mentzos

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Settle's Care Philosophy

      I strive to understand how an individual's medical condition impacts them and their ability to effectively function in their family, community, and work. I then design a treatment approach that addresses all of these components, with the goal of improving my patient's overall quality of life. I believe it is imperative that patients play an active role in their health care and that we work together as a team.
