Meet Dr. Amy Dover

"As a mom, I look for health care providers who will take care of my children as if they were my own.  I love what I do, and I enjoy forming relationships with my paitents that last beyond the treatment is complete.  I treat each of my patients like family--I invite you to come see us and become a part of it!"
