Incredible experience. I was misdiagnosed with immediate care and the ER after telling them I spent my honeymoon in Belize and have a video of movement in my head that looks to be a botfly. Both facilities sent me home stating it was a cyst even after video proof. Within 10 minutes I was checked in and the Botfly I’ve been dealing with for a month or so was finally removed. They recognized the issue immediately and resolved it. Completely pain free and such a simple process. They absolutely validated my thoughts and even explained the process to make sure I felt comfortable. Could not ask for better help with this situation!
