Dr. Stults feels like a part of our family, and it has felt that way for many years. He is the ONLY physician who my grandmother would listen to, trust, and follow. He treated and advised my father through the numerous complications related to his terminal cancer. He continues such compassionate care for my mother, who currently suffers from multiple myeloma. We rely on him for medical advice and counsel, and he brings us peace with his knowledge and expertise, which is unparalleled. He has personally helped me through difficult medical circumstances, both physical and mental. He is more thorough than any other doctor I have ever visited. He practices medicine as it should be practiced - by focusing on the complete well-being of the patient, rather than just interpreting test results. I would recommend Dr. Stults to any and all friends and family members.
