Care at OI is the best! I am a Case Manager and have referred many patients, family and friends to OI I have gotten positive feedback from most of them I always tell my patients that I refer them to where I would go if I needed care. All of my Ortho care has been done at OI. Dr Brokaw is exceptional! You have a great group of doctors!
