From the front desk to the doctor, the staff whipped into action to help me find out about my problem. They squeezed me in as quickly as humanly possible, and that was darn quick! They were kind and concerned and determined to make sure I received care. The doctor gave up some personal time to take a look at my concern and sent me off with a prescription as well as to another place for a scan. Those people are amazing!
