[...] the care I received from the Dr. Philp and the medical assistant was phenomenal!! They worked very well together, but most importantly they each explained what was going to happen, were reassuring during the procedure, and were thorough and respectful when explaining how to care for myself afterwards as well as set clear expectations for possible complications. Dr. Philp told me what next steps in my care were and I left feeling confident. This experience should be the standard for the way ALL medical care experiences are executed. TREMENDOUS JOB DR. PHILP!!
