Sat for an hour after our scheduled appointment in the waiting room. After the third time of asking when we would be going back we were told we could have a room but it would be an additional 45 minutes. This place does not value time. Absolutely ridiculous.

Dr. Mathison is the first doctor to actually listen to my concerns and helped me find out what's wrong. She also performed my sons tonsillectomy, she is very personable and takes the time to get to know you, she genuinely cares. I would recommend her to anyone, she's amazing.
