The visit was handled very professionally beginning with the assistants and technician that took the x-rays. Dr. Hardt was not rushed, went through the x-rays explaining each one...Dr actually found something on my lower back that I had not anticipated. He was very professional and very through and used plain language to explain ...much appreciated.
