From the moment I walked in the front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. When I met Dr. Julie Woodside she was very professional, explained everything she was doing, very sweet person. Most of all very personable which I have not seen very much of. Most tend to be all business but she made me feel very comfortable. Would totally recommend her to anyone.
