Patient Comments (1)

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We are glad to hear that you were treated well by our physician. However, we are indeed disappointed to hear you had a negative experience with our receptionist. This is highly irregular, as she receives so many compliments. We are not sure what happened, but please accept our apologies. I hope you'll allow us another chance to prove that we strive to always put our patients first and foremost.
