They don’t have enough staffs. Only two people. They will let you in the room after long period of waiting , ask one question and then leave; come back after 45 minutes and again leave. It’s just crazy. Not enough explanation and suggestions. Plan to be there from 2 hours to 4 hours per one person.

The administration in the office was terrible. They did not appreciate my time: their service cannot be on time. The doctor was also not helpful as he told nothing after a visit. Never visit again.
