Very professional, explains X-rays in detail, after detailed explanations he gives options, allows time for questions. We would highly recommend this doctor as well as Capitol Ortho. Dr. Crites & Dr. Jacobsen are awesome as well. Wouldn't go to any other facility. Thank you so much for your courteous & awesome service you provide. Darcey B & family
