I had to wait longer than any other time I have been here. My visit was good, outside of the cutting, and enjoyed the conversation with Corey and Dr. Grekin. The staff has always been very polite and professional.

They saw me right at my appointed time, I can't remember when another doctor has even come close to doing that! The doc spent time with explaining a few things and gave me a print out of what he was talking about. Excellent.
