TERRIBLE! DO NOT GO! The only redeeming part of my visit was the overworked and courteous staff. They are amazing and very knowledgeable. The building is dirty and equipment is old. Doctor Kansal was mean and cut me off during all my questions, wouldn't answer half of them, just brushed them off....more
