SHC Patient, Apr 2015

My family and I have great confidence in the care provided by Dr. Dodd and his team. They were a fantastic time - very professional and friendly. There was a long wait time from our appointment time, but when we finally saw Dr. Dodd he spent a long time with us and we did not feel rushed at all. He carefully explained everything and in terms we could understand. It was greatly appreciated.
