Wait times

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Very condescending, made me feel less important as a patient because I'm not a "pro athlete."

SHC Patient, Feb 2015

I was blown away by Dr. Salran's competence and geniality.

SHC Patient, Aug 2014

Dr. Safran quickly understood my level of technical understanding and adapted & explained my condition & treatment.

SHC Patient, Aug 2014

Brief, curt, had his mind made up & did not listen to me.

SHC Patient, Jul 2014

Excellent care & attention.

SHC Patient, Jul 2014

Would have liked warning that severe knee pain possible 4 hours after injection. Actual injection was very smooth.

SHC Patient, Jul 2014

The provider was fantastic!

SHC Patient, Jun 2014

My doctor made me confident he knew what he was doing.

SHC Patient, Jun 2014

Great guy but more interested in talking than in listening.

SHC Patient, Dec 2013

Excellent all around provider, best I've ever had.
