"I have seen both Dr. Rycyna and Dr. Slough and can't say enough about their professionalism and consideration. They really listen to you. It is also very refreshing to have an appointment time that is "your appointment time", no ridiculous wait time. To be in and out in less than an hour for an initial visit and 25 minutes for a follow up is incredible! Kudos to the entire staff! Keep up the good work!" - Debbie M.

"Dr. Rycyna has been a great doctor to me!" - Laura A.
