I am very pleased with the care provided and I hope to be able to have her treat me in the future should he need arise.

I trust my doctor _____ Vii and always have a very good visit.

June 2017
This was my 3rd shot from Nikki - so pretty routine at this point - she is great!

March 2017
Niki is very good - also her assistant is good.

December 2016
Nikki is cheerful and friendly and very responsive to questions/concerns

November 2016
My provider was a genuinely caring and deeply competent person. You can´t fake that. It shines through.

November 2016
Waited for care provider - could hear conversation outside of room - never asked - do you have any questions?

October 2016
Nikki Crawford, PAC, is exactly the kind of care provider I would like to always have helping me. She radiates competence, intelligence, and evenness of temperament. Talking with her increased my comfort level about my upcoming surgery quite a bit.

October 2016
Nicki is very good at what she does. I´ve seen her before and she was great both times I´ve seen her.

September 2016
It was okay- I really didn´t learn anything new, though she discussed options. No physical therapy was recommend, just pain or injection. but overall she was informative.

August 2016
I have had knee replacement. My other knee had problems, & I was given both treatments & reassurance.

March 2016
Nikki did an amazing job of making my very nervous 5 yro feel comfortable with her experience of getting her first cost.

March 2016
This was our first time with this provider, so I would need more interaction to score higher, but our first was positive.

January 2016
Excellent.
