Yes the wait time in the waiting area and that's quite long. We had to wait quite a while and it seems there was a little confusion with the girls there behind the desk. I think they were training somebody and yeah, but other than that Dr. Goebel is a number one. I would recommend him to anyone and his assistant is a number one. They are super super super. So, thank you.

Everything went very well with my appointment, and the doctor was very clear in his explanation of things. I only thing is that at 80 years old. I had mentioned that I would like to go to Elkhorn for a rehab and to stay because I have no one to stay with me and would not have a way to get to rehab so that's why I wanted to go to Elkhorn for the rehab. So that was my only thing that I had to say about my appointment. Otherwise, everything went very well, and I know that in order to do that, I'd probably have to be in the hospital at least 3 nights in order to go directly to Elkhorn. I I would just like to get that point across. Thank you very much.
