Dayton Survey

The provider was very friendly, listened to my concerns, went over all the images with me and treated my children at the appointment very kindly. He gave me the best news I hoped for, which was that my child didn't have any underlying conditions.

Dayton Survey

The staff was super helpful in finding where we had to go! And also after we left she told us the number to call if we had questions or concerns. She also told me they would call us to schedule the MRI and then gave me the number to call to have the appointment the same day! :)
