Patient Comments (2)

I found Dr. Ray very professional and courteous. She answered all of my questions and provided the treatment I needed for the issue I was dealing with at the time.

I can give less than one star because I felt she is not at all capable, did not give proper treatment and not listening what I am trying to say. Completely disappointed with her treatment, waste of my time and waste of my money.
