I have used this urgent care before & always things move quickly & in a professional manner. There was a lot of people in & out the day that I went, which slowed time waiting down.

I think this is the first time that I had the NP. I was so pleased with her. As I rated her above, she made me feel so at ease. Just about everyone who goes to a doctor is nervous, so was I but she ease my fears.

I did not have an appointment, I was a walk in and I was taken to a room inside of 10 minutes, very short wait time, but it was not busy that day.
