Dr. B is a very kind, caring physician who takes the time to listen. The rest of his team, Brian and Pat, are also very friendly and efficient. Everyone has a great bedside manner!

The person admitting me, was rude, I accidentally. handed her the wrong health card and filled out form in one area incorrectly, she was annoyed and I felt uncomfortable. I apologized to her for my mistake,which clearly she should of been the one to apologize for the way she was acting. We all have bad days, but still I felt bad.. I was not feeling well.
