One word:Awful. First of all they run all kinds of food allergy tests not approved by FDA. Then they tell you your allergic to everything under the sun and it’s best you just don’t eat anything. But...the biggest problem is that when you try to get to the office to get your shot they close down at the sign of a snowflake or any other bad weather. It’s just poor customer service overall.

My experience has been a very good one overall but I am a little disappointed when I have to see the nurse practitioner rather than Dr McDonald.
