I've had surgery here and visit my primary care and OBGYN here. The facility is always clean and safe! Everyone we encountered during my surgery and recovery were fantastic, friendly, and reassuring. Parking is plentiful but be aware that in the early morning, the only door that is open is the emergency entrance.
