“What a pleasure going to a medical facility where all the staff are friendly helpful and proficient at each of their specialties. Every step of my 2.5 hour visit was pleasant and all techs knew their jobs well. Dr Weinstock was thorough and treated my minor problem with total care just as if I had a major issue. I will recommend this facility to anyone with regular or special needs.”
