As a healthcare professional I had a pretty good idea of what was happening but when it was happening to you it is none the less frightening. Everyone was very reassuring and turned a scary experience into a pleasurable one. God bless Dr. Staman and all the staff.

1st visit. Everyone was very friendly, informative, and professional! Kudos everyone! Look forward to next visit!

The whole experience was great, specially the nurses at Dr. Staman's office. Looking forward to seeing them again in March.

Everyone was very nice indeed!

Excellent experience - Everyone was friendly, professional, seemed very experienced - and added helpful information of their own. Each person told me what was going to happen next - so all great. And now, if I do need future assistance I'm very confident I'll receive great care.

I had a very pleasant experience with Dr. Staman and everyone in the office. I really found my visit very comfortable.
