The receptionist was a little cold. She was very busy very hurried, but I assume that's probably because of this time of the year the doc himself Thompson absolutely outstanding great bedside took the time to explain answered. All of my questions was very concerned and thorough absolutely a 10. Thanks.

Everyone at the clinic was very kind, and even cheered for my daughter on their way out. (She got to ditch her crutches!) She is 11, and your staff made her day.
