I saw Dr Nurmi in urgent care. He was extremely knowledgeable and took the time to explain what was wrong. Prescribed the appropriate medicine and we were on our way. I would recommend this Dr and clinic to others in the future.

If you go to this clinic refuse to see Dr. Nurmi. It will be a huge waste of your time and money. He is not good at his job and you can feel how much he does not want to be there. Extremely disappointed that Mercy keeps a doctor like this on staff.

This Doctor appeared to be in a huge hurry to NOT do his job. I felt like his main goal was to shuffle us through without actually doing anything.
