    All the nurses, etc. are so pleasant! You'd think I was coming to "celebrate"! They prep me for the procedure and meanwhile "I relax, as best I can! Dr. Fandos arrives and is so pleasant. Also he precedes each needle with an "intro" so I'm ready for the "pinch"! All are so pleasant! & the nurses tell me "that's the way they always are" , including the doctor! What more could I ask for?

    Excellent doctors and staff. They've listened to my concerns and went above what any other doctor I have. I would most definitely recommend them to family and friends.
