This is our first time here. My son is on the spectrum. Everyone was super nice, and my son was so comfortable. We had a fantastic, easy, quick, but worthwhile service. The office is very clean and inviting. The TV monitors helped ease my son's mood. Really glad we found this office. Thank you all for a great experience.
