    Awful!I should have walked out when the office vibe was hostile! Not the woman at the desk, but a woman (Dr ?) walked back and forth between 2 doors for about 10 minutes! I was NOT given any sort paperwork that asked about why I was there, medical conditions, etc. When I saw her, she could not be bothered to listen to my answers before she rushed to judgment about why I was. I finally asked her to let me finish my answers! I walked out feeling lower than dirt on the ground.
