    Great service

  • Aug 16, 2021

    Dr Osborne is very thorough when it comes to explain topics/situations that are hard for me to understand. He always asks if I have any questions before I leave his office, which is awesome.

    Great experience with Dr Osborne who spent time listening to me and discussing with me and his assistant the results and follow up care.
