Upon meeting Dr Estes, I quickly understood first hand why he was so highly recommended to me. His demeanor is very professional and friendly. He was very thorough and kind in assessing my problem but also very hopeful that we will get it under control and have me up and running (or swimming!) again in a few weeks.
