Patient Comments (1)
in Etowah, NC |
Dr. Prechter is friendly, upbeat, thorough, knowledgeable, professional and efficient. He has been my doctor for 7 years. I finally convinced my husband who has a complicated health history to change to Dr. Prechter. He was very pleased. Dr. Prechter had studied transferred notes prior to the visit and explains everything so well. The staff is also friendly, professional and efficient.
