"My experience was great! I fractured my foot and then I was put in a cast for three weeks and a walking boot for three weeks. Everyone from Dr. Emel to the receptionist, to the X-ray tech, the nurse, the brace shop nurse, and the physical therapist were all SO nice and helpful! It was a stressful and disappointing situation being in a cast, and they all made me feel very comfortable. Probably the best experience I've had at a doctor's office." – Emily R.
