Everything about the visit was outstanding
Dr. Locklear is simply a wonderful, experienced physician and a very kind man.
No, Doctor Locklear explained everything, always a pleasure to come for my annual Cardio checkup with Dr. Locklear and his staff.
As with every visit with Dr. Locklear, he makes me feel cared for in many ways. He''s genuinely concerned about issues I''ve had (mostly in the past), has always done a wonderful job explaining what is going on with issues I''ve had, and provides answers to my questions about how the medications I''m no work. I''ve had the good fortune to have good doctors throughout my life but, with Dr. Locklear, I truly look forward to seeing him at my routine visits and I know, if I were to get in trouble, he''ll be there to help!
