Dr. Royer was very sympathetic to my problem. She took time to listen to me and my concerns. She told me surgery was not necessary at this time and I appreciate her being honest with me. I wouldn't hesitate going back to her in the future.

My experience with this doctor was horrible. She did my surgery and didn't help me afterwards at all with pain maintenance. She honestly didn't care about how I felt. The office even messed up my appointments. I do not recommend her at all. A PA told me that she's new so she doesn't know what she's doing yet.
