Superb. Smart. Efficient. Kind. And did the job well.

Seems like Dr. Murtaza is attentive and cares until he learns that your injury is not that serious and he will not be able to profit from you. Appointments felt very rushed, barely answered any questions. Very disappointing experience. When you come in, the admin staff asks you to fill out information about your health, prior injury history etc on the pieces of paper with extremely small print. You can barely see the questions asked. The admin staff has no knowledge of payment options
