Dr. Layfield listened carefully to the problems I'd been having with my shoulder. He looked at x-rays and then did an exam himself. He was patient with the questions I asked and let me be a part of the decision on how best to move forward. The x-ray technician, nurse and front-desk folks were all very friendly, efficient and professional. Only my second visit but both have been 5 star visits all the way!
