my appointment was only for vaccinations but everyone in the clinic was friendly, professional and made it clear they cared about me as a patient. The front desk person was very hospitable and the nurse, the intern and Dr. Desai made sure all my questions were answered without making me feel rushed at all. the information they provided was very useful and helped me make a good decision regarding one of the vaccines I was going to get. I really like this clinic and plan to use the clinic for my medical needs!
