I could not be more pleased with how I was treated from start to end at the Rockford branch. Curt is great at giving you time with him, asking the right questions and, just as importantly, explaining the reasons for my treatment regimen to me. I would return to get treatment from him in a heartbeat. Yvette is the best and makes you feel important all the time. Finally, the “student” staff are a great addition to the overall treatment too, fun to be around and already dedicated.Terry
