Dr. Deetlefs is the best doctor I have ever had. His kind, caring and compassionate. His sense of humor cheered me up. I was really impressed by the way he treated me and my husband. He even brought us snacks and coffee. I give this doctor 5 stars because he provides a 5 stars service plus he is very experienced. I couldn't be happier!
