I love Dr. Petty! He is very professional, and knows how to ease your mind when it comes to having a procedure done. He is extremely personable, and makes an effort to make sure you don't feel like you're on a conveyor belt. I will definitely always see him when it comes to general surgery...more

Dr. Petty didn't do what he said he was going to do. I now have new insurance and would have to pay the full amount again for something he could have done right the first time. I now need to see a new doctor for my health care.
