I was punctual and was seen nearly straight away after filling out paperwork. Dr. Pratt and staff were thorough but quick about it. I have not seen this same blend of kindliness and professionalism in some time and I very much appreciate it. I will be back. One of the very best experiences I have had in any doctor's office.
