    Dr. Fackelmayer and Dr. Walker were unbelievable. They both made myself and my wife feel so comfortable and at ease. I had decided not to have a biopsy before I had arrived. After speaking with Dr. Walker and Dr. Fackelmayer who would be doing the procedure I changed my mind and realized the importance of it. I am so thankful to him.
