Des Moines, IA |
Dr. Thurtell and Dr. Clark and their staff were very pleasant, professional, thorough, and all-around wonderful to meet. The appointment was timely and moved ahead timely. It was a huge relief to feel so well cared for. They explained my son's medical situation very well, gave opportunity for our questions, and will follow up to make sure treatment is working well and he is feeling better. Dr. Thurtell also prescribed medication to ease his intense pain, which is a huge relief to us both.
