Love this doctor. Yes sometimes you do have to wait but he always takes his time with you. He never rushes you. He explains everything to you.

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
