"Premier people are consistently pleasant, good-natured and attentive, and the practice always seems well organized and managed."



"First of all I must say that the women (Chrissea and I cant recall the other ladies name) at the front desk are so inviting and friendly and immediately make you feel at ease. Having surgery on my mouth was daunting but that greeting I had really made me feel more relaxed. Thank you for that. Dr. Wattimena was awesome and great small talk which helped a lot. Very professional and just overall very down to earth. But to be completely honest i especially like Brittany. She really helped calm me down with normal small talk, not to mention the meds. :) By the way, congrats on your new car!! Thank you to the whole team for the care I received. I look forward to seeing you again on the 22nd."
