Along with prayers, this doctor saved my life! She called several heart specialists & talked with them about the situation. She went over all the options with me & then called the surgeon himself & got my surgery schedule moved up because of the seriousness of the heart condition. She cares about all her patients and is very knowledgeable about all their health issues. Excellent doctor!

I absolutely love this doctor. Front desk is always friendly, Nurses are fantastic, and Dr. Best couldn't be more caring. They can generally get you in for an appointment very quickly if need be. I had an issue that I called for yesterday and her nurse answered my questions on the phone and then called me back to check on me today. I've never had better or more personal care from a healthcare provider.

The thing I like the most about Dr. Best is that I don't spend a hour waiting in the lobby and exam room waiting for her. She actually runs on time. In my busy life this is so valuable to me. The fact that she is a great doctor is even better.

Dr. Best has been my doctor for several years. When I first went to her I was in bad shape. It took her a little over a year and trying several things but I am doing great now. This Dr. saved my life. I trust her and highly respect her. I highly recommend her.
