He was professional and attentive and friendly. His smile is warm and he makes eye contact when he first greets you. I think that this is so reassuring. He answered all of my questions, and I had a lot. Dr. Stover was very concerned about my pain. His PA Jenny always responded to my emails quickly and thoroughly. Even the staff that greeted me and brought me into the exam room were friendly and professional. I would highly recommend Dr. Stover's services.
