I’ve been a patient of Dr Graves for as long as I can remember, & he is always very professional, honest about what needs to be done, (he doesn’t try to “up sell” you with unnecessary procedures), & he has a caring attitude & easy going manner with his patients, & is very gentle as well. His staff is awesome too!
