Patient Reviews

Overall Rating

I am a VERY nervous medical and dental patient! I had to go in for an in-grown toe nail in one toe and a full repair of an in-grown toe nail that was done incorrectly at PB Urgent Care (they are AWFUL!!!) in the other toe. This was, without question, the best doctor EVER and the easiest medical procedure I have ever had. I can't even handle flu shots, but had a pleasant conversation and ZERO pain during both procedures :) I would HIGHLY recommend this place to EVERYONE :) I wish this doctor was a family practice doctor so I could go to him for everything :)
