Not a fan. He didn\'t seem to offer solutions to issues. It appeared that he wasn\'t aware of my case or my previous visits. He was friendly, but friendly doesn\'t take care of the issues. I had to push to get additional services so he would know how to assist me.

The clinic had a person greet me and immediately got me a wheelchair even though I had crutches to make my pain less from the beginning. The positive energy and attitude from every person we encountered was unbelievable. I would recommend this group and place to anyone. The care and strenuous nature of cleanliness Dr. Bednarz provided was exceptional and made me feel safer for a fast and infection free recovery.

I had over an hour wait for MD and I arrived on time. However, he was very gracious and not only apologized for being late but explained why he was late. I was impressed by that kind gesture by a physician. I did give the wait time score a level mark but would give the MD apology a score of 10.
