    Dr, Word started the visit with calming me about any [ ] about the [ ] that had been discovered....explaining it was not likely to cause a major problem at least now and as I need other more pressing treatment he assured me he'd monitor the problem and keep on top of it.

  • Feb 27, 2023

    Dr. Word was the first specialist I've ever had who sat down, pulled out a diagram and explain where, what, why and how regarding my health. He really took his time and spoke to me as a person rather than just prescribing pills and sending me off. He made sure I was confident in my next steps. I would really recommend him. ALSO!! Every single staff member told me to have a good day when I was leaving. It wasn't just one or two people, it was 4!! They were also just so kind and pleasant.
