First of all, I found the waiting room seats to be filthy, but the staff and doctors and everybody rating a 10, but it was the first thing I noticed large waiting room. Maybe it's the material. You need to change my just look terrible. The second thing is I didn't get any authorization for someone to call me at night to run me through a very irritating question and answer but out of respect for the doctors and physician's assistant. They did a great job very kind and considerate that's why I took the time to answer that was a very irritating questionnaire could've been something, you know, you can do online and rather than making a sit and listen to this thing for a couple of 3 minutes. otherwise good job
