I have never had a bad experience with Dr. Latimer, and this appointment was no different. The office staff is always very professional. There was very little wait time. My problem was quickly diagnosed and taken care of. Dr. Latimer is such an asset to the community! We are lucky to have him!

No waiting. Friendly staff. Professional doctors.

   — Paula Davis


Dr Latimer is a compassionate, caring, personal, and knowledgable physician. He listens and takes time to evaluate me as a patient. He operated on my torn rotator cuff and my healed shoulder has not felt this good in years. He recently evaluated my back and has given me non-invasive suggestions to strengthen it. He is an outstanding physician with old fashion bedside manor.

My care under Dr. Latimer's team was done with care and concerns for everyone involved health and safety. Initial vitals, x-rays, doctor consultation, and surgery scheduling were handled efficiently and with friendly courtesy. Upon checking MyChart later in the day I was able to read the summary of the visit and Dr. Latimer's notes. This was helpful in fully explaining and understanding my care.
