"This is my review for 8/8/2018 visit. I am so grateful to Molly at the front desk for how compassionately she worked with me to schedule an urgent appointment. She could hear my worry and made it her mission to get me in ASAP. She greeted me with a smile and I knew she was the Molly that helped me on the phone. Dr. Black and Kat made the procedure as easy as possible and I’m so pleased with the results. And Rebecca at checkout was just so nIce and pleasant to work with and schedule my next appointment.
