First time to the facility. Everyone was very kind and helpful. Dr Thompson, nurses and PA were very nice, knowledgeable and took the time to explain my issue, options and procedure. After my injection, I passed out. They all took good care of me offering me, offering me snacks and water. They were all very kind and helpful. They helped me lay down and checked on me several times. Thank you guys.
