Very good first visit. Limited ability to know how to help at this point, but implemented a good plan to figure everything out.

For the first time I feel I have found the perfect doctor who wants to fix the problem instead of putting a bandage on it.

Dr Chisholm listened in detail to my observations and questions. She provided an excellent explanation in response to my questions and used X-rays to explain details of my prognosis which supported her analysis. Dr. Kavoussi was great as always and is the reason we drive 6 hours round trip to see him. He is personable and shows a full understanding of my care and explains the basis for my treatment regimen. We would highly recommend him to anyone seeking treatment.
