Staff were pleasant and professional. I was seen promptly at my appointment time. Felt somewhat unsafe as masks were not required; no temps were taken; only staff person that wore mask was the doctor.

Let me tell you, Dr. Tyler Harney is a very caring doctor. I could not have asked for a more attentive doctor. In today's world you don't find a doctor who takes time with their patients, due to insurance mandates. Thank you Dr. Tyler Harney.

Our experience hasn't been great. The staff is not as competent as I would expect. We have been given incomplete instructions twice and scheduled for appointments that were not entered into their system. We are at the point of considering finding a new doctor for treatment.
