I love working with Dr. Carmen and Dr. Jesse. They are very knowledgeable, fun, caring, and always strive to deliver the best results possible for their patients. I feel so fortunate to work in such a positive environment.

I am married and have lived in Ohio my whole life. My husband, Bill and I have two fur babies, Maddie and Bella, and two children. Our son is married and he and his wife live nearby with our two granddaughters and two grand dogs: Lilo and Tink. Our daughter also lives close with her husband and our grand dog Kevin (which is a girl!).
