They apologized for running late but I was still out ahead of schedule considering my appointment was booked for 1 hr and 40 mins!!! They even put together a care package for a deserving family that needs help for this upcoming season after I asked about getting some toothbrushes and floss for the children - they gave me stuff for the whole family - above and beyond the call of duty and they are not even patients! Thanks a bunch!!
