“My overall experience was great right from the minute we walked through the doors. We got there right on time, signed in sat for about five minutes then they called us to the back prepped my daughter, met the doctor and the anesthesiologist. They took her back for the surgery, we went out to the waiting room, and about two hours later she was all done. We went back to the back and waited for the meds to wear off then we brought Sydney home! We knew what to expect with all the information they gave us and told us. It was a good experience for all of us. Thanks to the doctor and his staff.”
