Very shady billing practices. They will charge for an office visit for vaccine when the doctor never saw you at all. The reception in the office is as terrible. I will not be surprised if these cons will get for malpractice one of these days.

Dr. Wells was extremely competent, intelligent and meticulous. She doesn't spend a lot of time chatting but her bedside manner is professional and no nonsense. All of the medical personnel at the hospital showed a lot of respect towards her. I had more than one nurse say that Dr. Wells is known to be detail oriented and meticulous in her work. I had to have a C-section due to my son's heart rate dropping and she did an amazing job. My scar is barely noticeable, and my primary care doctor said it was one of the best c-sections she's ever seen. Dr. Wells also did my son's circumcision and it was also perfect. I highly recommend Dr. Wells. I didn't need a best friend in the hospital with me, rather I wanted a consumate professional and that is what I got from her.

Wells is a skilled insightful scientific MD. Very frank and to the point (not warm and fuzzy) but where it counts she is solid in her medical knowledge, keeps abreast of medical info/studies, always took the time to answer my questions- which coming from a pharmaceutical background - involved technical understanding - Wells answered my questions promptly, accurately and without hesitation. Bottom line- if you want a top medical doctor looking out for you, your babies and pregnancy- do not hesitate to work with Wells.

I really appreciate her careful and conservative approach Also liked her ability to be on the same page w/my wants w/delivery. She is highly knowledgeable and willing to spend the extra time to answer questions and provide information very directly. Loved her straight forward & no nonsense approach.

I have other responsibilities that others had depend on me to care for them as well. Which I had to put on hold for this procedure. I was refused my right to my service dog several times by different so called nurses. employee terry stating I need a vest, paper work for my service dog. The dr. paul J. LEE even came out and said its true I need paper work on my service dog. Well None told me what kind of paperwork I need. They never asked me appropriate questions on my right for my service dog. I happen to have a tag that I have on my dog that registered the county is also aware and waives my dogs fees cause of her duties. All the county never requires nor ask me for paper work on my dog. I had been asked to leave the building cause of my service dog. I even bring a carry case for my animal. So she could rest and be safe keeping. While I would have got my procedures done. My son had to come with me too. He's a minor who can care for my dog and him self enough. That he would have be safe in waiting area. They refused him being there too. I also wasn't told I needed to have a ride from someone who would sign that they would be responsible for me getting home. Other then my minor child. I was there for hours starving dehydrated from they drink that caused diarrhea. I should have been on a iv for fluids. But it was more important to these women to get me and my child and service dog to leave the property asap. I had told them I was going to take Uber or disability taxi home. They said no I can't. They were rude,cold,had know clue on ADA service animal rights and requirements. But had to tell me they did. I was traumatized I had to go to Hospital and spend my whole day to get care for they disaster they caused. They could simply accommodate my circumstance. They had enough staff.

This depends on the center. Some may allow brief visits by family members. Patients should ask about visiting rules before inviting people to stop by.
No. Patients should arrange for someone to drive them home and stay with them for 24 hours following the procedure.
This depends on the procedure. Most centers ask that patients arrive one to two  hours before the procedure begins. Following the procedure, the patient will stay at the center until fully recovered from being sedated. This may take between one and three  hours. After that, if the patient isn't experiencing abnormal pain, he or she may leave.
