Great visit from start to finish. The nurse that worked us up was very friendly and actually talked to my son and I while doing what she needed to do without it feeling rushed and nonchalant as I have experienced at other offices. Tammy has been taking care of my kids before they could walk or talk. At this point it’s clear I will not go anywhere else!
