Due to technical issues beyond our control, we did not have access to our patient records and appointment schedule on Monday, April 12 and Tuesday, April 13th. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. 

We anticipate a high volume of phone calls today (Wednesday, April 14th). Please be patient and kind to our staff.
