I was greeted kindly and I really liked the receptionist's personal air. I filled out the paperwork and was called in quickly. The assistant was nice, and attentive. The doctor came in promptly and reviewed my situation right away. He was nice and I liked his professionalism. Check out was a breeze and I was given a date to return.
