Everything was spectacular accept the wait time, which was 45 minutes after my appointment time. Thanks for everything else though.

My appointment was at 130. I was taken back close ton130 then waited until 3pm before the dr came in. Way to long of a wait. I understand things come up even if someone would have come into let me know he was running behind that would have made me not feel forgotten
