in Smithfield, RI |
It's impossible to get a call back from them, don't waste your time and just call a different doctor. I left several messages asking for a call back and I've never heard back now in several weeks. Very poor office apparently so I wouldn't trust them to return calls when in need.

Knowledgeable and compassionate.
I look forward to my appointments.
