It was fast and professional. Dr. Rao listen and also answers all your questions. And they pretty much have everything in one building blood test and urine, weight loss, to endocrinology and etc. Like a one stop stop medical building other then the other doctors office where they have you driving around different areas. The waiting area is very spacious lots of chairs for people to sit at and the waiting room is very clean and up to date also the exam room is too clean and up to date glad I decided to change my doctor
