      Dr. Badger was not only very professional, but most importantly very approachable and understanding.

      Dr. Badger is my Primary Care Physician and has been for approx 6 years. My Husbands as well. He never makes you wait in the exam room before he enters. And he has always been attentive, professional and never once have I felt rushed explaining my concerns. He answers any questions I may have and then we discuss a proposed treatment plan. on this particular visit, March 4, 2020, he showed genuine concern for my medical condition and before I left his Office, he had arranged an appointment with a Novant Specialist in Winston-Salem. He made me feel much better about my situation and was kind to line up the referral on my behalf. I was to return to Dr. Badger to follow-upin one month, but Corona Virus has put that on hold. I dont want to venture away from home until conidtions are safe.
