Bedside manner
Great facility, nice building, great front-desk, amazing doctor who took the time to listen to my issue and had excellent bedside manner. A procedure I thought would be painful was 100% painless! Only feedback was that I submitted my insurancecard via zocdoc but they still needed me to give them to scan.
