STAFF: Great! Friendly and knowledgeable. OFFICE: Very nice. Everything is new and clean. They even have a small, separate room for kids so the adults are not disturbed by their noise. Parking is easy. PUNCTUAL: Not at all! I had to wait well over an hour to be seen. HELPFULNESS: None. Dr. Lingua was not able to help me. I left my appointment very disappointed and sad. I plan on going to another doctor who knows more up to date techniques.
