great atmosphere

The music is great and the waiting time has improved much. You walk in the door and right away you feel welcome, by the staff, from the janitor to the manager, which is a rare thing to find in Brooklyn .

Caring Doctor.

Dr. Afllu is a great Dr. I've been his patient for about 20 years, if there is something wrong he doesn't stop until he finds out what it is. I would highly recommend him to family and friends.
