Dr. Tifford is a great doctor. I really appreciate that he asked me what I thought the best approach to my treatment was before telling me what I had to do and what he thought was best.

The staff is very friendly and warm, still proffesional; Dr Tifford very thorough, and made extra effort to be sure I understood what the problem was, and why. Very happy with the care received, as well as the way the entirestaff, from sign in until leaving, made me feel comfortable.

Doctor Tifford is high energy which I love. He came in full of energy was completely attentive when I explained the reason I was there. He was charismatic and patient (answered all my questions and what if scenarios...). He addressed myconcerns before I even presented them. I will definitely be back.
