in Silver City, NM |
Dr. Ratliff is easy to talk to, has an amazing bedside manner, and explains things in ways that are easy to understand. I think what I like best is that, when I was having problems that others put down to my imagination, Dr. Ratliff listened. The end result was that I was sent to the NMHI and had further surgery, which resolved the issues I was going through.
