ratings and reviews
Everyone we came into contact with was helpful and courteous.
Dr. Jones is amazing.
He was thorough and took the time to reassure me that my son would be OK. He answered all of my questions without rushing.
I was VERY impressed with this provider. My daughter broke her arm on a late Thursday evening. I called the fracture clinic first thing Friday morning at 8am. I told them I lived an hour away. She asked if 9:15am worked, which it did. We were seen promptly at 9:15 and were spoken to, xrayed, and casted in 45 minutes. Now that is impressive!!! It was all done quickly but we never felt like we were being rushed!
