Melissa Tharpe is hands down the most caring, sweetest and trustworthy provider! I feel so at ease putting my healthcare in her hands and wouldn’t hesitate for a second that she has my best interest in mind when providing care. She made my visit extremely comfortable and I felt like more than just another patient to her. Her nurse, Emily, was also wonderful and had an awesome personality!
