The waiting room was clean, sign in was fast and easy. How ever they do not take personal checks. The exam room was the basic exam room clean. Checking out was fast and efficient. However the nurses were not very happynot one had a smile on their faces. Other than that I would recommend Dr. Toomey to my friends.
