This Office and every one there are very special to me I would recommend that if you have a choice (or not as I did not) and someone from that office walks in please stop and think about how pleasant this office staff, surgeon and especially my favorites PA and Nurse are. They treat you as family and make you feel special they take time out to make you feel like you are special and one of them. They take really good care of you and you will feel loved once you leave. Think about these people
