Marietta, GA |
Very Professional. Spent the needed time and we did not feel rushed. Answered all questions. We were able to get the orthotic device and support boot needed at the dept. downstairs from the office which saved time going elsewhere. Very favorable experience.
Clarksville, IN |
Beyond impressed with his professionalism. He was not pushy and spent a lot of time explaining everything so I could understand it. He did not rush in and move you out quickly to get other patients in. You can tell he knows his stuff and doesn't speak down to you. I would definitely recommend him.
