Didn't know what to expect when I first came here last fall. The staff and technicians (Edwina in particular) are outstanding and did a great job explaining things to me and making me more comfortable for each procedure. Feel that I have had excellent care at this practice.

Everyone in this office, including Dr Malone, was friendly & supportive, answering all my questions to my satisfaction. The proceedure was explained well and was essentially painless - and interesting. These folks are effecient and, again, very friendly, making sure that I felt comfortable regarding the proceedure in followup.
