Requesting an appointment on the website was very fast and efficient. I even received as email confirming my appointment date and time. Unfortunately, the next day I received a phone call requesting that I change my appointment to another day. I indicated that I would need to keep my appointment time as confirmed, the staff worked me in and my wait time was about an hour.
