"I have been going to Dr. Volentine for as long as I can remember, and I cannot imagine going anywhere else. Every member of the staff makes it a point to make you feel like you are the most important patient in the building. They truly get to know you and make you feel like a friend coming for a visit, not a patient coming for a check up. They are kind, patient, understanding, and comforting no matter the circumstances of your visit. I genuinely look forward to my check ups and getting to visit with my friends."Meghan D.
"I had very good experience with Dr. Anzalone. He is very professional and informative and made me feel comfortable. He evaluated me for a procedure, and was very good at explaining the whole thing and putting me at ease. I thought I would have to schedule the procedure to have it done, but he ended up working me in the very same day. He was very accommodating."Carol Colson
