    Dr. Doman has always provided me excellent care and support over the years.

  • Mar 2, 2022

    Excellent care received but spent over 3 hours in the office (my entire morning waiting) for 15 minutes with the doctor. Had they called me to let me know, I could have come in later and not missed nearly 4 hours of work!!

    Love Dr. Doman.
