It's was nice to have an experience where you not treated as a lab experiment. The Dr talked directly to me and patiently listened to what I had to say as well. He was not typing and just going, "uhuh". Patient to Dr response was great and staff was pleasant, like they really enjoyed their jobs. I know it's hard dealing with so many people all day, but it was refreshing to walk into an office where people didn't look they had bathed in pickle juice and drink lemon juice all day! Lol
