Patient Reviews

"Dr. Pierce and Dr. Wilhite (a resident) are both amazing doctors. They acted with a great sense of urgency and were very supportive. Dr. Pierce is knowledgeable, clear in her assessment, considerate, never rushed, kind, and showed extreme empathy toward my situation. My overall experience couldn't have been better."

"They have went above and beyond to keep me informed and the service and care I've received has been wonderful through these past few years and I couldn't be more thankful for Dr. Gilbert and Dr. Pierce and all the nurses."

"I feel super blessed to have received all my care from Dr. Jennifer Pierce and the staff at MCI."
