Dr Slivers reviewed my chart, gave me a physical exam and explained in layman's terms the test he would like for me to take. He did state it was from an outside source since Hurricane Ida had greatly impacted the testing availabilty. I was please with my visit as well as with the facility which I had not been in since they moved.
