Patient Reviews

“I had an appointment with Dr. Dwyer, and I explained the problem that I was having to him. He was very receptive to the complaint, which I really appreciate! He offered “choices” in my medical treatment and explained the alternatives to addressing the problem. Surgery was not his first choice!!! I also appreciate that he is thorough in his examination of me, not rushing to shuffle me in and out, and will answer all the questions to make sure I am aware of the avenue he plans to expedite the healing process. Thank you.”
