    My Nurse Practitioner Melissa Mimes was so professional and friendly. She took the time to explain the process taken prior to me making the decision to have the surgery. She recommended a couple of procedures just to make sure that surgery is needed. Not only did she explain the process, but she also made sure that my procedures dates were confirmed prior to me leaving her office. I am glad to have met her and will highly praise her work and her demeaner. SHE IS GREAT !!
