Again, kind and courteous. I don't really have a primary care doctor but I needed one because I was in extreme pain with my arm. My primary care doctor which is not related to this facility was not very professional in her answers when I had questions about my condition. Dr Ratliff was very kind and so were the nurses and staff. They were professional in their answers and they seemed to care.
