Great Doctor, takes His time and explains in easy to understand language. One complaint, wait time can be long.

Filthy clinic. I am appalled that this place isn't shut down. Not to mention dated worn out decor. Paint is cheap people! Unprofessional children running this place. Unfriendly and untrained. Ugh
