The service was fine. I had ... didn't really have any problems with it, and that's all.

I am very thankful for how the doctor and nurses took the time to answer all of our questions. Many doctors come in and act so rushed. Dr. Goenka was very patient and made sure we covered all our concerns and we never felt rushed. I really like the paperwork they gave my team about seizures that asked questions I hadn't thought of and made sure she understands her condition. I wish I remembered the nurses name after we met with the doctor because she did a great job and my daughter was very comfortable talking to her.
