Patient Comments (1)
Glen Cove, NY |
He Was very considerate to our son! He went out of his way to go to the hospital to run our blood results since the lab was closed. The staff was kind and always tried putting a smiling on our face and easing our nerves. I highly recommend the office. Wonderful with responding to our messages and requests.
