Patient Review by Angela J

Today was my first appointment for a consultation. Everyone was pleasant, professional and helpful. Thank you Melissa in scheduling, Ashton in insurance/payment explanation and Dr. Whitman. All were thorough, kind and professional. Thank you also to the first young woman who look my x-rays, she was awesome as well, I’m sorry I didn’t get her name. I will definitely return for my procedures.
