Patient Comments (4)

Dr. Douglas Wayne is one of the nicest doctors I have ever met. He took the time to talk with my husband and I like doctors used to do years ago. I knew he really cared and that made all the difference in the world. His staff is just as nice and they care to. I felt so good when I left that office....more

Highly recommend! Spent a lot of time with me & seemed very knowledgable about the body! He did an EMG & NCS on me & it was not at all what I had heard it was going to be. I barely felt a thing.
