The Best!

Not only is she the best in town, but my son at 23 also developed the same disease. Upon calling office, explaining the emergency, she did not hesitate to see him right away and I credit her with possibly saving his life when recognizing it was an emergency. Even though booked full, she made the time to see him immediately. She is the best doctor in town. Listens to everything you say.
