Philadelphia, PA |
This practice is unique. No other medical practice, in my experience, has consistently been so punctual, friendly, efficient . . . I always run out of superlatives to use! From front end reception to xray, nurses, lab people, the orthopaedic hospital, of course, Dr. Rothman himself. You are all simply wonderful!
