Their schedules are kept light intentionally to accommodate patients who need to be seen urgently prior to their scheduled visit. Abigail, Keith and Kelly are in close communication with the doctors at all times regarding all care issues, and are well qualified to handle the majority of medical issues that may come up at any point during your care with us.
