this is one office I never mind coming into for my appt. Office staff is great as is Dr F making sure I understand what was discussed, answers any questions w/o feeling rushed. It is simply one of the most pleasant medical offices and believe me.....having lived in the area over 30 years, on island and now Bluffton. I have been a patient in many medical offices that I would never go to again...and there's a lot of them. This office has always been a pleasure, all the way round!
