Dr. Connolly has been my Dr for over 10 years. He is the most caring and considerate Dr I know, he takes the time to go over any concerns you have and his first priority is you, his patient. I hope he never moves or retires,i don't know what I would do. I don't think i could ever find another Dr. like him.Thank you Dr. Connolly for all you do. Thanks for being true to your calling. I am very fortunate to call you my Dr. Sincerely, Shirley Norris
