Patient Reviews

Overall Rating:

This place is 5 STARS!!! The place is very clean, professional, and very friendly. I had to make an appointment day of and they made the most effort in fitting me in. (I had called most of the places in Galveston) Ruby went to the moon and back to help me out with figuring out my insurance and what was covered--she is probably the nicest person I have EVER came in contact with in customer service. Seriously. Now just interacting with  Ruby made me a loyal customer but Dr. Fikkert made my experience AMAZING.
