THE BEST doctor i have ever been to

I have been seeing Dr.Shivers for a couple of years now and I LOVE him.The wait time is usually long, but it is well worth it.As I sit in the waiting room, I don't mind because I know he takes his time with every patient that walks in that door.The staff are wonderful, his bedside manner is the best I have ever seen and have never had an issue with getting an appointment even if I had to be squeezed in.I have been truly blessed to have found such a caring doctor.
