Amazing office of caring staff. In less than 90 minutes my son was checked in as a new patient, went throughtriage, had an xray, saw the nurse practitioner, saw the doctor and devised a plan and even saw the durable medical equipment rep that fit my son with a knee brace we took home with us! So easy and a breath of fresh air to deal with all of those things at 1 appointment!
