I saw Dana Fanning for a pre-operative exam for hip surgery to be performed November 11th by Dr. Ayers. I found Dana to be very professional, personable, and above all, helpful. Knowing I'll be in such caring, capable hands has helped to put mind at ease.

I did not get lab results because the test was done yesterday and were for upcoming surgery. The provider did a great job. I've been to this group before and I've been pleased with the speed in which they address your issue and with the medical services they have provided for me, and for my wife. They're top notch.

I have seen Dana post knee surgery w/Dr. Ayers--years ago now. I get cortisone injection in rt knee every 4 months; helps a lot. Dana keeps need for eventual replacement surgery up front but not pressuring. Saw her this time for shoulder/hand issues. She gave me her best read, referred me to Dr. M Daly. Appt w/him 2 days later. Equally positive.

wish the xrays of my actual toe - not just the foot it was hard for the HCP to see the detail of the toe where the issue is because the xray was of my foot not the toes specifically

Dana Fanning was excellent. She did an exam of my injuries, referred to the x-rays, and went back and forth like that so that she was sure nothing was overlooked.

Dana is always professional , friendly and takes the time to listen with concern and understanding & then explain what the X-rays and her exam show and what route to go.

Dana is excellent and it is evident right away that she genuinely cares. She spends the time needed to discuss and assess the situation with the patient which does not seem to be the norm these days. Highly recommended.

Deanna is exceptionally empathetic and truly professional. I always walk out feeling that my caregiver is responsive to my particular needs . She is extremely competent. Always demonstrates her understanding of what is going on with me. Deanna can be right out straight with a very busy day but I never feel rushed. She's my idea of a real professional at her chosen discipline!
