Columbia, SC |
Exceptional experience. Appts were all kept within an hour. Xray, MRI, surgery within the same building. Billing contact, Heidi, was patient and helpful. Dr Ugino's staff and office is very business focused. They value patient's time, speak in layman's terms, display professionalism, etc. Stan and Teresa in surgery area were also exceptional.
