Review for Dr. Congello

The staff was very pleasant and kind. My nurse was very nice. Dr. Beasley was very professional, but a man of a few words. Sometimes when a person is nervous about seeing a new doctor, we get forgetful on what we should be asking, or doing. He was friendly, and I only hear good things about him.
