“"My experience with Dr. Mentzer, and all of his staff, exceeded every expectation I had in choosing him as my physician. They are extremely efficient and stay on schedule which is a rarity at best in the standard Doctor appointment. I also truly appreciate how friendly everybody was that I dealt with in the office. I never felt like just another no name patient file that was being shuffled through the office. Doctor Mentzer and PA Zachary Ritter always listened to my concerns, and presented me with my options for treatment explaing in great detail what was causing the issue, and how we could fix it in terms that I could understand. My surgery was flawless, and the follow up care and concern was beyond compare. I would absolutely recommend this office to anyone seeking care with 100 percent confidence they will be as happy as I am after my experience." – Sandra P.  ”

“"I was so pleased with Dr. Garner and all of his associated staff during my visit. I was treated with kindness, respect and in no way did I feel like just another chart number. Everyone is so cheerful and eager to assist the patients. I was also surprised at how short a wait time there was once I arrived for my appointments. Please continue all of your great work ethics!" – Janine V. ”

“"My shoulder replacement went well after a slight delay in the surgery date. Dr. Sparks had a lesson in the unpredictability of bush planes when the weather does not cooperate :)) I feel that my questions were answered adequately and office visits were friendly and professional. I would also like to comment on Dr. Ryan who is my usual Ortho doctor. Dr. Ryan is my ideal MD, he listens and he informs me and other clients I have sent to him at their level of knowledge.   AFOC thank you for the years of service for myself and the clients I have sent to you for care." – Dolly L.  ”

We had some hurdles along the way but Dr. Sparks dealt with each one of them with the care and professionalism that befits his calling.
