I feel like the receptionist staff and the care providers make a strong effort to provide my medical care with genuine empathy, personalized for me as much as if I were a member of their family.

I appreciate the Dr. Fontana took another look at my X-rays didn't like what he saw. And handed it off to the colleague to take a look at. I'm now scheduled to come in for another X-ray. Thank you.
