Quickest I've ever experienced yesterday. I was told I would get a call (probably same day-Wednesday) about my MRI.. Still haven't received it yet.

I was very impressed with the amount of time that the PA and Dr. Burt. Gave my daughter with evaluation as well as looking at the MRI and then the time. He spent explaining the condition and the length of time for Recovery. He genuinely took the time to really learn who needs her concerns and where she wants to be so very much appreciate the personality of both the PA and Dr. Burt.

My last appointment I waited 40 min past my appointment time. I did not ever get to see Dr. Burt after the surgery so that was disappointing. However the PA was very good.
