It wasn't a nurse, it was a doctor, and he was caring, attentive, and quick.

I really like the facility. It was easy to find on the roadway and everyone was courteous and the doctor was very (INAUDIBLE), and very explanatory and I would highly recommend that facility to anybody and I felt so comfortable and at ease.
