Dr Early took the time to look at my blood pressure medicine and agreed they were not working and is helping me to find out what combination works for me. I've been on the same meds for years and I've continued to have high blood pressure! So glad to finally have someone listen to me!

I have treated with Dr Early for more than 10 years. Very bright. Always up to date on the latest medical research. Always willing to take the time to explain things. Highly recommended.
