Everybody was very nice and helpful. The office person, at the front desk, was very polite and helpful in relation to helping me get all the necessary paperwork together. The doctor was very nice as well as the other health providers involved. The doctor described treatment very well that could be easily understood and she offered several suggestions instead of one that allowed more flexibility. All health care providers were open to questions that helped. Great experience!
