      First impressions--lasting impressions. I live in a different time zone from the office so got a little confused on my appointment time and arrived early. The receptionist was rude, unpleasant and otherwise obnoxious. When I gave my name, she looked at the computer and said, Well,, you're early! You'll just have to wait! I was was OK with it. Anyone like that in the health care system need lessons in manners or a new job. I gave this 1 star because the nurse was very professional
