  1. Hi,

    I came in to your clinic today for an acute migraine resulting from an MSG allergy. I cannot tell you how grateful I am that you saw me immediately and provided the care that I need. The provider I saw called herself Dr. T. She is a wonderful young MD. Your support staff was also very kind and helpful. My husband and I are grateful for you all.

    Thank you,
    Tami Gager, Ed.D.
