Kristy was great! After thoroughly examining me she advised that I get an x-ray where I was able to walk across the street and get one within an hour. She then reviewed the film and advised a step by step process that would help with my injury. I appreciated the fact that she recommended several things that I could do starting with the least invasive approach. The consultation visit was very informative.
