I have full confidence that he is a very professional doctor. So very glad that Racine is getting younger doctors. Not that the older ones aren't good, just a good trend to see happening.

I was apprehensive after Dr. marked the wrong area for foreign object removal. I knew it would be painful when injecting the anesthesia but it was almost more than I could bear. Once that was done it was fine.I clean it every day and it still is draining. Still sensitive & painful to touch.

We were asked to arrive 10 minutes early which we did, but weren't seen until 30 minutes after our appointment time, so in the waiting room 40 minutes. Never acknowledged after the initial interaction and again when we were called back for the appointment. Other than that, the experience was excellent.

The Dr was wonderful - he listened patiently as I explained my problem. He was so nice. The only issue I had was the exam room was really dirty - dust on the window sill, and exam table, and floor was really dirty - I think they need to improve on the housekeeping staff at this office. Worked in a hospital for close to 20 years and this was not the norm. Hope they make improvements especially if they are doing minor procedures in their.
