    *Dr. Petty was excellent & even called us at home twice a few days after surgery.

  • 7/4/2018

    Always a great experience with *Dr. Petty. From the beginning (son's birth), *Dr. Petty has shown patience, understanding, knowledge, and compassion.

  • 2/19/2018

    I cannot even begin to describe how much my daughter and I adore Dr. Petty. He is extremely professional, caring and helped solve our health concerns from the moment her met my daughter. Thank you is not enough. We need more Doctors like him and I am not sure that I can ever repay the debt that I owe him. Definitely one of THE BEST physicians we have ever met.
