I haven\'t been in office for 18 months. Staff continues to be friendly but there is even a higher level of respect and concern shown by all. My medical situation has been somewhat complicated to diagnose and I truly appreciated the time and patience the doctor took with me during this visit. I am very pleased with the direction the provider and his staff are taking overall.
