I had originally made an appointment for an mri for what I thought was a sprained ankle. I arrived that day for the appt and after a few short minutes talking and getting analyzed from a few different people, I was headed to take x-rays. After a few pictures I headed back thinking it wasn't anything to do with my bones. The doctor came in and pulled up the x-rays and even from my little knowledge of human anatomy I could plainly see the break on my leg. The doctor was explaining everything clearly how this happens and that it needs surgical care. He then told me he doesn't normally do surgeries on certain days but he was willing to squeeze me in the very next day! The fact he would go out of his way just to care for me right then and there instead of having to schedule something the following week on days he is normally scheduled. The operation went extremely well and every staff member I interacted with the whole morning was a great. A + experience! (as amazing as my experience was I really hope I won't have to be back there under those circumstances again!xD)
