What our patients say

"I just wanted to say THANK YOU. I have read up on quite a bit of expecting moms experiences with their ultrasounds around the country and they were less then favorable, some horrible. But our (my husband and I) visit to your Baptist office was wonderful. The office is nice and decor is great. The tech was patient and educated. She answered all our questions, some before we even asked. She gave us her undivided attention and took her time. I am looking forward to my next appointment. Great service provided!" Ronnita W.,  Miami
