in Ithaca, NY |
I had never heard of Dr. Bonniwell's, I had an emergency and was referred to his office. He was able to get me right in. The entire staff was extremely friendly, everyone went about and beyond. The doctor treated me like a family member, discussing each option there was for me and never making me feel pressured. I had never been put under, the women made me feel very comfortable and were quite funny. For the situation I was there for, I actually had great experiences. I would highly recommend!
