“Each member of my team has been carefully selected, from the Physician Assistants to the Receptionists, to make sure that every team member reflects my philosophy of care and concern for our patients. From the moment you walk through the door, you enter an area of calm, peace, and relaxation. Respect and concern for your needs are paramount to all our staff. It is our goal to make each stage of your treatment as straightforward and positive as possible”. ~ Dr. Sean McCance
