Dr. Althouse, Deanna and the entire staff make you feel so comfortable. They take time to listen, answer questions and explain to your satisfaction. They are never too busy for you. Also, your wait time is very minimal. Outstanding!

Dr. Phisitkul is the best. If it was not for him I would of cut my leg off "Honestly". I had been to several (6 or 7) doctors and had lost hope. He has completed a couple surgeries now on my ankle and has given my life back. I have lost the wishing of cutting my leg off. I would follow him to any location he would transfer, he is that good! Can't say enough about how he has changed my life. Of course it would be a little easy if I was notified he moved locations ;-) However I found him when I need him, and will continue to visit him when needed ay any location / state he is that good. Thanks for changing my Life Dr. Phisitkul!

It would have been a 5 star appointment had every patient in the office would have been required to wear a mask. I felt exposed, especially in a medical office. Otherwise, I love Dr. Althsus and all of the staff are very professional and very kind.
