“Dr. Majors is one of my all-time favorite providers. He is very informative, extremely patient, and always compassionate and understanding. He has a way about him that makes you feel like he truly cares. I especially appreciate that he takes the time, although he is extremely busy, to answer all my over-inquisitive questions and breaks down the answers to make them easily understandable. I really appreciate his approach. When I had hands surgery a few years back, it was his demeanor that helped me to relax and stay calm before being wheeled into the surgery room. Dr. Majors should be a mentor for any young doctors in training on how to interact with their patients. He is a true professional in all aspects of health care!”
