Patient Comments (1)
in Laurinburg, NC |
I strongly recommend seeing Dr. Ivy. She is the first Dr. I have ever met that I felt read my medical history. On my first visit she told me the issues I have been dealing without me having to tell her why I was there. I even told her of my experience with other medical professionals and her response was truly enlightening. I have never met a physician like her and I can't fully express my gratitude that I have finally found a Dr. that really cares about my health.
