    From the time that I arrived until when I left, I felt that all of the staff were extra nice and accommodating! Brandon came in to take vitals and we talked like we were friends and Dr. Echols really listened to everything that I talked about(long list). The phlebotomist got my blood in one stick in my arm, even though I normally hear the excuse of deep, rolling and tiny veins, when they are pricking 2-3 times in my hand! This has been my best experience at a doctor's office in a long time!
