Chris is always friendly and helpful. The back staff is very professional and friendly and answer all my questions. My complaint is when I call . I was put on hold for 10 minutes to cancel an appointment . When I finally spoke with someone they said they couldn’t cancel the appointment and said I had to speak with Chris. I insisted they could do it and they reluctantly said they would.
