Sometimes it can be difficult to identify issues when utilizing other methods like x-ray, ultrasound, or CT (Computed Tomography). *
We understand that going to the doctor can be stressful and even scary. Giving our patients a high level of comfort during their visit is our number one priority. We strive to give you a tranquil atmosphere with music, earplugs, and a sleeping mask to help you feel more relaxed.
