I wish the front desk staff could be dressed more professionally. I am probably old fashioned, but in your profession, many are.

The doctor, and his staff were very knowledgeable, and they really helped me with my situation, and I would definitely go back.

I really need to get in to see the doctor sooner and to be off 4 days is not soon enough. when I'm in pain and I work a 40 hour job a week, 4 days is too much. And they told me call immediately if I had a problem and I did and the response was 4 days from then I could get treatment again.
