They were welcoming as I entered the office and did pre-screening paperwork and tests. The nurses and Doctor were clear and concise when explaining concepts and going over test results. They were overall friendly and had all of their procedures well organized (even with the actual doctor not physically present everyone was able to communicate and I felt like I was getting great service).

As result of new people and reassignment of duties shot process seems less organized. Shots are less comfortable, forget to watch 30 minute timer, seem to take longer in shot process.
