I really like Doctor Rockwell, he takes his time with his patients and seems to care about them. I have been going to him for three years now, he pays attention to your complaints and let's you know what the problem is. The office here in Jacksonville, NC is not far from my house, so that' s convienient, that's a plus. I have been going to Orthowilmington for about six years and I love the girls that work there, especially Joyce, Terri and Jamie, don't know the new girls very well yet!
