He was nice enough, but rushed me out of the exam room in less than 15 minutes, wanting me to get blood work done, and didn't seem interested in answering my questions. I was charged $350 for that 15 minute visit. Will not be going back.

Dr. Day is an excellent doctor and very thorough. He has a Midwestern sense of humor and he's down to earth and practical. He is efficient and helpful as well. His training is excellent and I was told he taught medicine at Stanford Medical School. An MD doesn't get better than that!
