Everyone was very professional. I didn't have to wait long in the waiting room.

I have been there before and that is the best service I have ever had at a hospital. I had Dr. Buzzell. My husband was there for two surgeries and I say that it is the best and I would recommend it to anybody.

I specifically asked for this clinic because of the excellent treatment my husband had received earlier to have a broken arm repaired. He has severe congested heart failure and other doctors had told him "you broke it; you will have to live with it" due to their inability to coordinate full scale medical treatment for the surgery.
