Just okay, really. He had two students in the room and never asked me about it. That’s not okay in my book - especially being someone with severe anxiety. I never got an official diagnosis, more like “let’s try this andhope it works” it left me wondering if I’ll have to go back for a third time to just try something else.

I was initially seen by a physician's assisatnt student. She then stood in the hallway talking with the doctor and repeating what I had told her. I prefer to talk to my doctor personally rather than having my symptoms relayed bya student. Even though the doctor had already diagnosed my pain, he then said "let's do an x-ray too." I am not a fan of unnecessary diagnostics or expenses. The office seemed like a factory where they were just churning through patients.

This office is like the opposite of every office I have ever been to. It was fast (they were running early), communicated openly the whole time as to options and what was wrong, and were just plain nice. I would gladly recommend this office to anyone.
