A friend referred me to NAPA and I’m so glad she did. I was placed with Heidi and she is wonderful. Very caring and empathetic and it feels so nice to have someone listen to you and genuinely want to help. The office staff are also very kind.

I have been a patient of Dr. Penland for years and I can honestly say he is 5-star+. I never feel rushed and always know if he is running behind, it’s because the patient sitting in the chair is his top priority.
