Hook up/tech part worked perfectly, great to see Dr. W, no issues with communication, all good! Great experience, everybody made it smooth and easy.

I am happy with the new COVID 19 protocol for entering the building. The wait seems less and waiting room uncrowded. Dr. Wasserlauf and his team are wonderful.
