They fit me in the same day I called and needed an urgent appointment. The Dr was very friendly and put me at ease. Even though I was embarrassed to discuss the issue and how it happened he was really good. The whole staff was just very friendly and helpful. They made sure that you knew that they were there to make sure you were ok.
