Friendly, knowledge, professional staff. The medical care & bedside manner was second to none. I was very stressed about having the procedure based on discussion with fly & friends who had this procedure done by other Dr.’s. Dr. Foreman took the time to go over the procedure in detail and explained what to expect post-op. At every follow up appointment he explained what I was going to experience in the coming week! I should have had this done 10 years ago. Awesome Dr. and staff, I can’t say enough about how positive my experience was!
Always get the best, most effective care with Dr. White and staff. They are so patient and accommodating. I'm a patient for life!
