Dr. Graves has a way of making children feel at ease also, because my 10 year old and nervous 17 year old love him. We have been with this practice for around 12 years. Superb care, great advice and a comfortable environment. Oh, and the front desk working with your insurance is awesome! So friendly and helpful, even when dealing with insurance!
