One five-star reviewer said, “What a great place! I mean…if you have to go to a place like this (and if you’re over 50, you should!), pick this one! The RNs, the anesthetist, the doc and the staff were all wonderful. My physical and emotional comfort seemed to be their first and only priority. Every step was explained carefully and every staff member introduced themselves and their role in my care. The facility was spotless and comfortable. The procedure was quick and painless!”
