Patient Comments (1)
in Fairfield, IA |
Dr. Oetting really took the time to explain my options very clearly. He was extremely competent at the procedure. He also showed a lot of caring about the outcome, even gave me his email address to follow up a few days later to make sure I was doing well. His office also followed up to see how I was doing and was very responsive to a potential complication (which turned out to be no problem after all, but they saw me right away just to be sure.)
