What our Patients are Saying

Highly professional and courteous staff. I highly recommend this practice! –Phyllis B. This review was posted on Facebook

Exceptional service, quality care and professional staff. I drive over 1 hour to receive treatment from Dr. Kelner. All I can say is that she is truly worth it. If I could give 10 stars, I would. –Laura W. This review was posted on Google

Service was good. No waiting went in right at appointment time. Was told everything that was going to be done. –Keenan G. This review was posted on Facebook

I have been a hygienist for 15 years and have temped for the last 4-5 years. This means I have worked in many, many offices. This office is by far, practicing the best infection control procedures of any office I have seen. –Li F. This review was posted on Yelp
