Wait was too long, they overbook and the people waiting looked like they were straight out of Walmart. HMO nightmare. No thanks

Dr Downs was great. He explained everything to me. He did not rush my appointment. I left feeling very hopeful. I even referred him to my co-worker who was looking for an ortho doctor.
