“I want to say I would give Denise West a 10 on scale of 1-10.She is very caring, yet thorough, answering any questions or concerns. The entire staff does a great job. Because of skin issues, I talked my husband into becoming a patient at Riverchase. We have certainly been pleased with his treatment as well (Dr. McBride).”
“Denise is excellent. Very personable & professional. Treats us like family. Wonderful! I highly recommend your services to others.”
“The best doctor I have had. Super friendly without it being too much. Definitely would recommend her to everyone.”
“I’ve already commented on the staff’s phenomenal sensitivity to my needs, and I was equally impressed with the cleanliness of the clinic. All of the staff members were passionate about accommodating the needs of their patients as their first priority regardless of the plethora of other demands on them. It was truly an inspiration to experience their altruism!!! The world would be a better place if we all could emulate them!!!!”
