I feel fortunate to have had the doctor and staff here take care of me in during my injury. They gave me a feeling of ease and confidence that I was in the right hands. Thank You!!!

Great Bedside Manner!

He is well knowledged and politely professional and has a great bedside manner. As a person with 20 years in emergency medicine myself, I can attest that the first impression demonstrated to a patient by a caregiver is the most important in how treatment outcomes will be. You only get one chance to make an impression and Dr. Romine secured that in our first meeting.
