I was delighted with my encounter with Dr. Artz. She removed a cyst in my rear that was causing piroformis sciatica due to pressure. She was stellar at meeting my personal needs and I would recommend her to everyone.

Gave me great peace

Dr. Artz was professional with a great sense of humor. I thoroughly enjoyed her comments with humor when she quickly visited me a few minutes before the actual procedure. Her first visit explanation re: the surgery was complete and answered questions without hesitation. She included what I would expect during the first 2 weeks of recovery and she was right on target. Overall, she gave me great peace with her superb communication skills. You are doing exactly what you were created to do!
