I arrived at the reception area and the staff quickly got me signed in and was directed to the waiting area and no more than 5 minutes later was taken into the office of Doctor James King. everything from that moment until I was dismissed was an experience of efficiency, courtesy,and professionalism. Don't let the facts that I checked the highest rate in every box make you think I didn't take the time to be accurate in my answers.The only way I could be more expressive is if there was a way to score an "11".

I had a 3:15 appointment....but didn't see doctor till 4pm. Plus they made me reschedule because on the day of my original appointment...they said they needed that time to do a surgery. But that's not my fault. They should not overbook appointments. That upset me greatly cause they called me the day of my first appointment saying that they need to reschedule me. ;0(

He was very kind and careful when examining my knees, to decide that I needed to get injections of cortisone to help with my knee pain. The attended understood my fear of bleeding from the injection site, I had mentioned from my previous visit that he put a tighter wrap with gauze and stretch wrap to make sure they wouldn't give me a problem until I got home. I really appreciated it.
