the receptionist put me in as having back pain when the reason I was there was thinking I had the flu and a possible kidney infection. the doctor ran a flu swab on me though he did NOT swab me. we waited 30 minutes before I asked a nurse to have him come in and swab me. he came in and told me my results were negative though he never swabbed me. I was questioned by him and the nurse if I was sure he had swabbed me. he finally swabbed me and called with results of a positive flu swab. very confusing visit.

I would like to send home a thank you letter. He has such a calm, caring manner. We clearly went over the treatment process, and he sent me to the nearby S&W Pharmacy for the medication. When I arrived there the Dr. had already called it in and it was ready. Very caring . I am already seeing some marked improvement. Thank you for your follow up.

The doctor and nurse were so kind. My son has Autism and they took their time with him, explained every step and showed great patience. My son fought with the heart pulse machine, but the nurse never lost her smile. She used an alternate method that made my child more comfortable. My son also fought against the dr checking his ears, throat and doing a flu swab. Again, both the dr and nurse stayed calm, spoke sweetly and worked with me to manage my son. I was so grateful for their excellent patient care!

The wait time in the room was short. He was friendly when he came in. He was very effecient. He listened carefully to my health issues and asked questions to make sure he understood. After the exam he told me what he saw and discussed his diagnosis in a way I understood and agreed with. Then he explained his treatment plan. I was very thankful I saw him!
