Great staff. I didn't really need to see Dr. Hightower, but I saw his ARNP. She was excellent and explained things clearly to me.

My husband and I are new patients. We went for a full body exam. Dr. Hightower did an extremely thorough, slow and careful exam --even of the scalp. On me he found a suspicious site, took a sample and I return today for removal of a squamous cell cancer on my leg. He listens carefully, has a person in the room taking extensive notes on a computer and you feel valued as a patient.
