  • 10/17/2017

    I have complete confidence in Dr Emory and the rest of the team. I understand that my surgery will be minor and it does not need a lot of explanation, however, we felt rushed by the doctor, and her nurse, and as we left, we felt we could have asked more questions. Everyone treated us well, and we are satisfied that we are getting the best care available.
