Great experience with the checkin, processing, and x ray teams and doctor. All were very professional, communicated clearly, and listened very well. Would highly recommend.

Amazing experience. Dr Meijer was very informative, personable and made me feel very well treated and understood. He explained the situation and options. He gave me great confidence in his advice due to his demeanor and explanations. No arrogance at all - very comforting and a great listener so his responses were right on target. I felt like he listened and cared. I was very impressed with the whole visit- even through all of my pain.
