9-4-21 I need to make another appointment, I fought the generator during Ida and the generator won. I have some new pain in my bones.
GREAT PEOPLE here at this office.
I was in the grocery pre Ida and this lady is all wrapped up in plastic and straps from her knee to her hip and she told that the same doctor ""we use""" is the one that patched her up. I am very happy to hear that he from your office. mc
