Everything was delightfully pleasant and comforting.

#12011-03-28 09:42:42

sometimes I feel the phone staff is not as helpful as it could be, but that is not reflected in the quality of services. Front office is very professional overall.

#22010-11-04 13:29:14

I really am not sure how you could improve. The visit was actually relaxing.

#32020-02-21

I recommended this practice to a family member but they showed up 15 mins late to their first appt. due to traffic and were turned away (after traveling over an hour to get here). I would suggest on the first visit to allow more leeway for late appointments (try to fit them in) and then explain the late policy for all appointments moving forward.

#42011-09-21 14:47:49

You were amazing
