Dr. Culviner takes meticulous care to ensure all concerns are addressed. For the detail oriented patient who is willing to spend the time you will not be disappointed with his care. You may wait a few minutes but when you are in your appointment he gives you his full true attention.

He performed a procedure on me and the doc didn't even do the procedure correctly. After getting "strange" results from the procedure, Dr. Culviner suggested I get my tonsils removed, then 5 minutes later recommended I have surgery on my neck, then changed it to me getting a guided procedure (which would be the same EXACT procedure he already did). Changed doctors and found a good one. That same procedure was done by new doc and found out I have cancer.
