Self-verified patient of Dr. Laurie B Small - Posted on July 1st, 2015
Dr Small is a very caring doctor. She takes time with her patient and answers all questions. She is the one who finally diagnosed me with temporal arteritis after years of going to different doctors with no answers. She took actions right away. Called me herself twice and called my pcp twice as well to get me the help i needed. I will be forever grateful to her for listening and saving my eye sight.
