Dr. Prunskis has been a real pleasure to visit. He actually listens to you and takes the time to hear what you have to say. He explains everything in full detail, in terms that are easy to understand and ensures you are comfortable at all times. Along with Dr. P, his team is fantastic. Always very warm and welcoming.
