I was treated by everyone at the DR\'s Office by everyone with a lot of care and attention to my needs. Whilst having my blood take the lady at the reception made additional effort to try and get me an appointment at the hospital. Even though no one was answering the phone on the other end, the lady made the appointment and followed up with me regarding this appointment. The whole team made my visit an enjoyable experience. Thank you.
