There is none better than Dr. Robert Dennis. His bedside manner, his compassion, and his professionalism speak volumes.
in Tyler, TX |
Dr. Dennis is excellent! I was referred to him by several people- great doctor! He had to refer me to a specialist but called me in to see him to ensure the specialist explained the reports well and I was able to understand exactly what was wrong with my knee. Can't say enough good things about him and his staff!
in Longview, TX |
He was amazing, knew immediately what was wrong with my ankle and the process it would take to gain full range of motion.
