Roy Nance – Jun 29, 2020
Dr. Vallance and his office staff were efficient, professional and courteous as always. Dr. Vallance always gives ample time to listen and respond to any concerns or questions. I really appreciate the sign in his waiting area to the effect that I, the patient, will get the time it takes to properly attend to my visit, even if I might have to wait for it. That's exactly how I would like things to go.
