Dr Gambrell and staff are absolutely the best! He had to remove a broken tooth of mine and I must admit, he went over and above to insure that I had no pain and was as gentle as possible in the extraction. I recommend this practice to everyone!

They are friendly and courteous. They appear to know their job well and do it in a timely manner. We have been going to see Dr. Gambrel for decades.  The wait time for your appointment time is not very long and in fact they get you in at your appointment time.
