What our patients say

about Our Team

We were bringing our newborn in for a dr visit. The front office staff allowed us the opportunity to wait in the car outside & fill out the necessary paperwork. They also called my husband on his cell phone when it was time for us to go back to see the nurse & doctor. We appreciated this so much because we did not want our newborn to be around anything that could make her sick at 5 days old.
