I was thoroughly impressed with the entire process from start to finish. Every member of the staff encountered was extremely professional, polite and efficient. I was impressed. The doctor was also extremely knowledgeable, professional and thorough. He also spent a decent amount of time with me and that was very much appreciated. I had blood work done and I received the results in less than 12 hours - which is also very impressive. The doctor reviewed them and made meaningful comments in less than 24 hours. Again, very impressive.
