    I didn't have a long wait time to see Dr. . office was clean and felt comfortable about Covid safety. My visit was not rushed. Dr. made me feel comfortable about my concerns and questions about the procedure I wanted to know about.. He was pleasant, understanding about my condition and the pain I have been going through for so many years.
