I was very pleased with my visit. All the staff i encountered were very nice and seemed genuinely caring. Dr. Jurist took time to address my questions and concerns. At one point he was about to exit the exam room but when I said I had another question for him he took his hand off the doorknob and stepped away from the door. He then really listened to what I said and took plenty of time to respond.
