No complaints at all. Excellent experience

#72010-09-30 10:38:51

I have a suggestion: I noticed that two of the lovely rugs pose hazards to patients using walkers or who may have other mobility issues. The large rug placed at an angle and the narrow rug placed in front of the reception desk leave no room for these individuals to safely manuveur around the reception area and are likely to contribute to fall risks. I would suggest leaving these areas clear.

#82010-10-04 12:14:56

Can't imagine any better first impression.
