'I was very well taken care of and definitely had a sigh of relief when leaving. Highly recommend.'

"Went in the early morning to see a doctor for my knee and I was very well taken care of. A nurse came to help open the door as I strolled in with the wheelchair. Barely any wait once I arrived at the front desk. The nurse escorted me to my room where she made sure I was comfortable. Once I met with Dr. Wong, he was very considerate of my situation and went into detail about what he thought the issue may be. Very compassionate doctor who was funny and kind. Left within two hours and definitely had a sigh of relief when leaving. Highly recommend this Urgent Care."
