    Dr Tibbs and his associates were helpful far above my expectations.I could not have asked nor expected the level of help and professionalism that was given to me. Thanks to all.

    It had been 10 years since I last saw Dr. Tibbs. I was surprised and amazed at the finely tuned check-in process. Everyone was pleasant and very helpful. I was taken back within 5 mins. Excellent process.
