Everything was great. When I entered the office, they took me right in. They gave me pages to fill out, which were very easy to do. I got right in, and everybody was very accommodating. I got excellent service, and I would recommend everybody there. Thank you very much.

Hello, how you doing? Anyway, the doctor, when I left there, I didn't know much more about, I knew my arm was much worse than it was before I went in there, but the doctor didn't seem to do know what he would do to if he did do the surgery. And then on the way out, I supposed to sign some kind of release form. At the front desk, they don't even know what kind of release form I was supposed to sign or whatever. They sent me home with that. I I don't know what I'm supposed to fill out on it or what, they said all I had to sign it on my way out, so. I was kind of confused over the whole experience. Like I said, the doctor didn't even know what he'd do to my arm if he did do the surgery and there wasn't much promising about surgery if he did do the surgery than what it is now. Alright, thank you. If you need any

Hi, this is Jen Lasher. Yeah, it's a very very professional doctor's office and they got me in right away, and I was explained that you know, what's going on with my injury, and I'm just trying to go to step 2. So I know it's a process so yeah, so just trying to see what my options are, as far as other things. The doctor, Dr. Bonness said something about me meeting with another doctor in the office, and I don't know if he still wanted to do that or ... So yeah, I'm just trying to find that out and I don't know if the other doctor was going to take more x-rays, or if he's just going to look at the x-rays I have on file. So yeah, I just was wondering
