Very thorough and professional office and staff which run the large office like a well oiled factory. But, they get the job done. Be prepared to spend over two hours there.
Staff is amazing!
Took quite some time to be called back and then the steps seemed to go fairly effeciently. Dr Leon gave me as much time as I needed. Arrived at 1:50 for a 2:00 appointment. Left the office at 4:10.
