I have a high regard for Dr Ahrendt and his staff. They have always been there for me over the past year and half when I first came to them. I cannot say enough good words about this practice. A very knowable and skilled practice by all parties that I have been in contact with at this practice.

I am very satisfied with Dr. Ahrendt. He was very busy that day so there was a 45 minute delay from my appointment time before I saw Dr. Ahrendt. His staff is very nice and very helpful.
