“Today was my first visit. However, the entire staff was helpful, pleasant and courteous. My mother recently had total knee replacement surgery completed by Dr. Phillips. She is doing wonderful and healing quickly, hence the reason why I asked for Dr. Phillips. Dr. Phillips took his time with me and explained what is going on with my shoulder in depth, asked me if I had any questions and a treatment plan was put into place today. I go back in six weeks for a follow-up. Thank you and your staff!”
