Each person i had was beyond wonderful. At receptionist area i couldnt hear & she took the time to speak louder & directly to me where i could hear & understand. Very patient . The nurse was very attentive made sure i was safe gettin on & off scale & just getting to the room. I have many falls. The Dr she was fantastic. Took time to explain everything to me. Took extra time to give me a referal to a different type of dr that i needed. Explained preventive measures i could do to help with my situation. I also was able to visit 2 other areas that i needed appts for. very patient respected my privacy & went ou ut of their way to give me appt at time best works for my schedule. I would like to say Kudos to all staff & Dr. aling with the nurse. Just overall fantastic people. Thsnk you very much.

I left the office feeling very unsatisfied this time with the care I received from her this time which is unusual as she's normally very thorough. I felt like my concerns were just brushed aside and not thoroughly dealt with.
