PATIENT FOCUSED SURGICAL PRACTICE
We are a small surgical practice with a team dedicated to patient care. We respond to patient inquiries in a timely manner and patients can expect to speak with one of our staff members when they call, instead of being routed through an automated message.
Appointments may be obtained by referral from another doctor or by calling our office directly. Our office personnel will do their best to schedule an appointment which is convenient for you.
