Tara was very down-to-earth. She took time to get to know me and listened to all my concerns. I never felt rushed. When I was done, the checkout staff informed me all my prescriptions were ready for pickup and all myreferrals were done and handed to me. I was shocked as I've never seen such efficiency in a doctor's office. I will definitly be back.
