“Everyone I had contact with before, during, and after my hand surgery were welcoming, and very professional. Dr. Allaire and the anesthesiologist made me feel confident that I would receive the finest care and I had no doubts or concerns that weren’t addressed. The nurses were gentle, unrushed and kind. The office staff I interacted with were all friendly and helpful. I’m grateful to everyone for such a positive experience. Thank you!”
