I couldn't be happier with the time and attention that Dr. Bredthauer provided. His knowledge is impressive and I felt very secure in him handling my issue, and also nurse Jo couldn't have been better. Thank you.

Everything was really great and all the staff are really great except I was not told my leg was not awake yet and so on the way home it woke up and the pain was terrible, it was probably a 15. I had no meds with me and I was not warned it might not be awake yet and it was very uncomfortable.

I found checkin confusing. I was asked to complete a form then when I returned to the desk I was told I needed to see the originating receptionist-who was busy with another patient, for quite some time.... wondered why some else couldnt have gotten me handled
