I have always valued the expertise of the doctor, he is obviously truly concerned about the welfare of his patients. I have never felt rushed, and he takes the time to listen to and address any of the issues I have.

Everyone was very nice, explained things very well, when I almost passed out, they took very good care of me. I just didn't have any after care to take home with me.
