    Mara C

    Loved everything about my visit! Friendly staff, answered all of my questions so I could understand the answers. Just awesome!!!


    Dr. Pam and her assistant did a great job making my five-year-old son’s first visit a success. I seriously didn’t think my son would cooperate with them, but with a lot of patience and silliness they won him over. Thank you so much.


    You all are by far the most friendly people I’ve ever been around and even though I didn’t come in a lot, I seem to be greeted with my name every time!
