Dr. Poling always spends ample time and thoroughly explains problem, treatment, forward path. He stayed late to look at my X-ray with me (same day it was taken). I appreciate that. The nurses out in the lobby were very good about helping patients maintain adequate distance and seemed very on the ball with regard to where every patient was and if we needed assistance. They also went an extra step and put me in a room alone to wait for my X-ray. I had put off going in for this ankle injury, but I'm very glad I eventually went. Scott and White made me feel safe and comfortable.
