Every staff that took care of me was very helpful and efficient

I had too many issues going on for the time allotted. Dr. Grosberg was kind, caring, and very practical in prioritizing the most important task, ensuring that I knew the other non-urgent concerns are noted and will be followed in subsequent visits.
