This was the first visit that I had to wait a bit longer than usual. Not sure why. Seemed like there might have been a computer issue in some of the rooms as I was in a different room than usual and the discussion between two nurses made me think that might have been the issue. Also-the staff here is terrific in general. Very kind and compassionate as well as informative.
