My very first appointment with this office i was skeptical, I was nervous that i needed to have surgery in the first place but during my appointment i felt rushed, a student began to take my information and when the doctor came into the room she got tense and the doctor rushed through my questions and barley looked at me, it was an uncomfortable situation. I understood my procedure was nothing major but a surgery is a surgery and I felt i needed more info. overall it was not a good experience
