Dr. Bannister was willing to do a surgery that others refused to do because of degree off difficulty and has continued to give me the care that has given me a good quality of life.

Today was my first visit to Dr. Banister. I hate going to the doctor, but this was a pleasant experience. He gave me options other than surgery, explained my diagnosis, and plainly stated his advice. No surgery for now. Thank you and your staff very much! Jessie was a sweetheart!
