Everyone at the clinic was helpful and pleasant. Dr K asked lots of questions about my symptoms before looking at labs tests I had prior to the visit so he could make an unbiased decision. He spent time with me answering all my questions as well-friendly and compassionate too! I would highly recommend him to any of my friends.
