They were all very nice.


All very good.


After surgery, Dr. Langfitt and two other doctor's came to visit. While talking about how I was progressing, I mentioned that my heel was hurting. My family was very impressed with the immediate reaction of all three doctors who quickly moved to check my foot and immediately provided me with the care I needed to relieve my discomfort. Although I appreciate the care, the doctors quick reaction put my family at ease and quickly cultivated a higher level of trust and a lower level of anxiety for my family. I appreciate that Dr. Langfitt and staff took the time to caringly react to my concern. Their quick, caring reaction positively impacted four individuals - I am thankful.
