Very helpful, knowledgeable, and personable.
Very friendly and thorough and answered all of my questions
PA is incredible listener, provides in depth continuity of care. I have some unusual conditions which he has evidenced and I believe is truly working at "unpuzzling" in order to provide best, safe possible care for me. He doesn't mind questions and his knowledge assists me in follow through of my care. He's ok with ALL comments and questions.
The check in staff, radiology staff were excellent. The MA in ortho didn't make good eye contact, she seemed tired. The PA and MD were outstanding and worked well together. Dr Grinfle diagnosed my issue and he was the 3rd ortho I saw. His PA spent an additional 49 minutes with me and wax very concerned that I get the correct PT person. This is my first visit , I retired from a competitor health care and I was really impressed. Great experience.
Professional friendly concerned about my condition went out of way to explain my course of action was very explicit about future treatments Made me feel comfortable
