I thought the visit was perfect! - The staff was friendly and organized. - The overall checkup was longer and better than ALL OTHER places I’ve been to. - Everyone took time with helping me, from the receptionist right up toDr. Fucigna. - I never had to wait. - The technology is excellent; also better than I’ve seen anywhere else. They don’t use unnecessary equipment, either. A++
