Well, I recently went to the urgent care. The services rendered were in no way shape or form hospitable or personalized. Evidently they only check you out and send you to a doctor. If the doctor was here 5 days a week, you could shut this down and add another office for one or more doctors. The treatment would be better. Second, when coming in for xrays, don't bother acknowledging the front desk. They had me wait there so they could notify the dept I was here. Added about 20 minutes to the wait and the pink ladies are extremely short and rude and they do not understand how to give expiditious service. The xray tech was very fast and very helpful as well, no issues there.
