The nurse was ready to take me in the exam room right when I finished the paperwork. She took my weight, BP, etc. in no time at all, and I then waited less than five minutes for Dr. Reickes. He isvery personable and has a really great disposition. He took his time listening to me and then took his time explaining his diagnosis. It was a super visit.
