That may sound over the top, but I don't know how else to describe it. After 45 min of waiting, was assured I would be called back soon....more

The wait time was about 3 hours after my appointment but once in the back dr. Friedman took his time with me answered every question. He didnt make me feel rushed but instead i felt cared about.
