Could tell anyone that this was a very good place to be with a problem could not ask for any better from any one.
Patient | January 25, 2017

Were it not for Dr. Schenk being the best, I would drive out of town for care as I could get in quicker. It is like there is no regard for the patients time in the office. You need to block an entire morning or afternoon for any kind of appointment.
