Excellent physician

This doctor was the only one out of 6 prior physicians and/or PA's to correctly diagnose my skin itching that I had for 4 months. He had it controlled and almost completely gone in 1 week! Will definitely be back with all my skin related issues. Thank you Dr. Childers.

Excellent care without a lot of fuss and bother!

Dr. Childers takes care of the problem without a lot of fuss and bother. He is an excellent physician and I have never had a long wait at his office. He also is great because he doesn't schedule a lot of unneeded tests and have you back several times for the same problem. One visit and your problem is taken care of! Highly recommend him and I have been going to him for years!
