Patient Convenience

A patient's phone call is important to us.
We believe that a patient's experience should be a positive one from their very first phone call to us. Instead of being on hold or getting a pre-recoded message, patients will always get a person to talk to, both during and after our businesss hours.

Helping you stay on track.
We utilize a leading edge patient notification system that can remind you (by phone, email or even text) of your next appointment so you can stay on track and not delay your recovery process.
