"My husband and I are always impressed with the professional and courteous way we are treated. From the time we enter your office until we depart. During the exam I’m treated in a kind way that respects my privacy by the PA. During Covid we were most grateful for the careful way we were screened and offered sanitizer for everyone’s health concerns. "
