I was very appreciative of being able to get in ASAP for my injury. So thankful you were able to double-book me on a fully booked day instead of having to wait 2 weeks after my injury to be seen! The staff was great at being in contact with me, and calling me back as soon as they had a spot!

Again, the staff was amazing at staying in contact with me and getting me double-booked on a fully booked day. I again stress how grateful I am that you guys were able to doublebook me on a fully booked day, so I didn't have to wait 2 weeks after my injury to be seen.
