    Riverwoods oral and maxilofacial surgery is the best! They took out my difficult wisdom teeth that “wisdom teeth only” wouldn’t even touch and the best part is that it only took a few days to recover.

  96. I would love to share my experience with Doctor Meyers. ( dermatology )

    Had my first appointment 6 months ago, and was nervous because I never met him before.
    He came in and looked so young, but was so pleasant and had this great smile on his face!
    He checked my skin cancer body, and took care of all the spots he found. The treatment was a bit painful, but he waited in between to let me get some air. What a sweet and patient doctor he is,

    Have to see him again March first and this 72 lady is looking forward to be checked without any fear. This doctor is simply the best, better than all the rest, better than anyone, what more can I say?????

    A doctor with a nice and sweet personality and such a sense of humor, is simply a winner!!!!!
