Dr Symbas, Kelly, Victoria, and honestly everyone who works there have nothing but smiles for their patients. They are always so happy! Not to mention, there is barely ever a wait longer than 5 minutes and everyone takes their time to answer all your questions, of which i always have many. My A/C joint surgery - which i was never pressured into - could not have gone smoother and Im 2 months post op right now. Kelly and Dr Sambas both have seen me post op and Victoria was the most helpful surgery scheduler ever. Not to mention i would up paying zero dollars out of pocket, so she is definitely a special angel in my book. And Obamacare didn't hurt the process either :)All and all, it was one of the best experiences with a doctors office - and surgical procedure - Ive ever had. Kudos to everyone involved and thanks for the newly functional shoulder!
