Dr. Koumjian was excellent and the only reason why I had a short wait was because I was early and an emergency appointment came in, which is completely understandable. The staff was super friendly and explained the various tests and equipmentthoroughly. They were really clear about what my insurance would cover and what it wouldn’t so I wouldn’t end up with a surprise bill.
