    - Candace L. Westfall, Cartersville, GA
  • "I have suffered with neck pain for over a year. My doctor had tried everything to help me with no relief. As a last resort before having surgery I started coming to A Family Practice & Wellness Center. They have been a God send to me. My pain level is almost nonexistent. The Doctors and staff are so friendly and helpful. I am so satisfied with my patient care and recommend them to everyone I know!"
