Very Efficient Practice!

Dr. Itani and his team are fantastic. Together, they run a very efficient practice. Dr. Itani is friendly, patient, and professional. He took the time to explain the procedure to me and help me understand the treatment plan. His staff were very helpful in breaking down estimates and working with my insurance provider. Overall, it was a 5-star experience. Highly recommend 🙂
