Met Dr Payne for inpatient care for my husband and his care, kindness and professional demeanor is exceptional. during follow up visit with my husband, I made an appt to see him for an injury incurred recently that I had been putting off and the receptionist gave me an appt for same day within couple hours. have never received such service from any other facility. so impressed with Dr Payne's office

I would definitely recommend Dr. Payne. He was knowledgeable. He spent time showing me before and after x-rays of my fracture. He answered all my questions and didn't make me feel rushed. He assured me that if I had any problems I should call and he would address my concerns, recommend PT, etc.

My PC recommended Dr. Payne. My husband, Bob, had seen him last December, and we were impressed with Dr. Payne then. My experiences have been just as excellent. I've encouraged my PC to continue to recommend him. They share the same qualities - they are easy to talk to, thorough in their explanations, and caring physicians.
