So far I have had positive feedback. The personnel at the front desk are very nice and cordial, the nurses and assistant for Dr. Keck are very nice. Dr. Keck is very patient with me and she checks my record to better serve me. I like Dr. Keck, she’s knowledgeable and if in doubt she checks the books, colleagues, info etc. smiley face, hand clap, thumbs up, and double check marks! I hope we keep this relationship going. Thank you.
