Dr. Vallance and his office staff were efficient, professional and courteous as always. Dr. Vallance always gives ample time to listen and respond to any concerns or questions. I really appreciate the sign in his waiting area to the effect that I, the patient, will get the time it takes to properly attend to my visit, even if I might have to wait for it. That's exactly how I would like things to go.
