I found this practice to be outstanding. The office staff processing you and your paper work before you see the doctor were friendly and assisted you in making any future appointments. Ms. Deborah Patterson, PA-C gave me a thorough examination and took time to explain my medical problem. After the examination she prescribed a medication and again took time to explain on how to apply the medication. I had several questions which she answered. I will return and recommend this practice to my friends and associates.

Provider was respectful, hygienic and kind to my 95 year old mother (patient). She was able to persuade her to have surgery to remove the non healing wound on her back. Previously, we were unable to get her to agree to further interventions. We look forward to having this practice continue to provide care for my mother and my husband and I are also going to switch providers to receive care here.
