Wait time was none. I needed to take an x-ray and the clinic had the X-ray technician available on site, no extra appointment needed. When I spoke to the doctor, he prescribed a splint and an MRI. Conveniently enough I couldalso get done in the same clinic. This place has everything! I got my splint custom made for me as soon as I walked in the physical therapy room. This clinic is the best!!! No hassle, no wasted time waiting. All the staff personal is very friendly and helpful. Doctor’s bedside manner is concise and very honest with his diagnosis. He seems to care about his patients.

I chose an early morning appointment. I was treated quickly, with minimal waiting. I was able to fill out new patient forms, get x-rays, and consult with Dr. Besh in under 1 hour. Dr. Besh was professional and easy to talkto. He clearly explained his diagnosis and walked me through treatment options. A very positive experience. I look forward to seeing Dr. Besh again if needed.

Dr Besh spent considerable time listening and explained what could be the issue. He is very patient. My only concern was the wait time before I was seen, but on the bright side, he did not rush through the appointment, so I would not mind waiting.

he is good cause he knew right away what was going on with my wrist just by looking at my x-ray (no broken bones or anything); he was also nice, just wished there was more time spent in asking about history and what the probably causes were.
