First time visit. I was very pleased with the professionalism shown to me. Staff was courteous, explained testing and I was never left in a room, and forgotten, which happens frequently at an office. Dr. Mittica was excellent, explained condition and answered my questions. The reassurance was he gave me with options really helped. He speaks at laymen level. They warned me about the 1-2 HR wait, but it was worth it, and didn't seem that long. What a beautiful office, decor makes you feel at home. Love the room with the Virgen de Guadalupe.
