I was taken aback to an exam room and was very thoroughly examined and was taken into the hallway for another machine exam. The young technician was very knowledgeable and pleasant! Then I was taken to see Dr. Yates. He was very nice and knowledgeable and thorough! He asked me many questions and listened to my answers! I couldn’t ask for anything more!
