I've consistently received great service from the check in experts this most recent visit as well as all the previous ones. The receptionist's know what they are doing and make the process painless. Dr. J. Buzzell is by far the most down to earth and approachable physician I've ever sought treatment from and I appreciate his expertise, treatment, and solid advice. Over all a number 10 experience across the board.
