Provider was the most uncaring and uncompassionate provider I believe I have ever seen. Very rushed. Waited an hour and half for him to provide me with no help. He did not provide me with any realistic options for the kind of pain I have been in. I will continue to search for a provider that will provide me some help. Would not recommend.

The receptionist was courteous and understanding. Both my daughter and myself were treated with respect. I had to fill out paperwook that I had previously filled out. I cannot understand why. I had previously filled them out at the other office. Other than that, I had a wonderful experience. Thank you.
