What Our Clients Say

“Dr. Day removed a growth from my face…three months later you can barely see any scar even when looking for it. I was advised by a friend of mine who saw him that I would be in good hands. They were right! If you want a doctor who listens to what you have to say, takes care and attention in performing the surgery, with a cheerful personality, then this is the doctor for you. I would highly recommend Dr. Day.”
