Visit was very good, quick and efficient. Paperwork as with all medical stuff very inefficient - too many forms too often - while needed for compliance needs an overhaul.

I appreciate being treated as a person and not a number. You didn’t make me feel like you were in a rush to get to your next patient

Overall very good experience. However, the receptionist did not provide me with the digital token I require to set up my online account. I asked her for it. She replied that it would be sent to me via email. This does not appear to be the case.
