She is just wonderful. Going to the Doctor has never been as pleasant or comfortable.
Zephyrhills, FL |
I am hesitant to say how wonderful she is as I want to keep her all to ourselves! Caring, intuitive and just honestly kind. She always takes the time to talk openly with you and you never will feel rushed or like a bother. Her staff will get you in same day if truly needed and wait times are minimal.
