    I mainly saw Melissa and she was amazing. Melissa was always smiling, friendly and had an upbeat attitude. Melissa always made me feel comfortable and had no problem answering any question I had.

    My experience is always wonderful

    PA Melissa Crist was very kind. She recognized me from assisting with my surgery in the operating room, and she remembered my issues with medical trauma and pain processing issues. She asked if I was okay with the procedure, given its invasive nature. She checked in frequently during the procedure to make sure my physical and emotional comfort was there. The procedure was painless and there was no issues with re-traumatization. She is an excellent provider!
