I was worried that I would be late because of traffic on Central Expessway. I called the office and the receptionist was so kind and understanding!She told me to be safe and come on up to the office when I get there. She said that they would work me in.The traffic opened up and I wasn't all that late, but I was so grateful that the receptionist was so wonderful. It made me quit stressing and worrying. I was called into Dr Vallabahn's office within minutes of arrival.Dr Vallabahn was his typical caring self.I checked out and all was well.
