My boyfriend and I visited with Charla for our first time and already feel a comfort that typically comes with time. Charla takes her time to understand her patients concerns and to get to know them. She is thorough in explaining what will happen at the start of your visit and the upcoming visit. My boyfriend who is normally impatient to get moving found her very efficient. She has mastered being quick while being relaxed as well and not making you feel rushed. She took tha time to answer all my questions and was very educated and caring in her responses. So happy we found her! Thank you Charla!
