We were treated very fast, I wasn't even done the paperwork and we were called to a room. We arrived early and were taken before our scheduled time. The nurses and doctor were very helpful and took their time with us.We never felt rushed or unheard. They listened to our concerns and answered all of our questions. We left with results and follow up notes so we didn't have to try and remember everything. Great first visit and impression.
