I was having a difficult time with two other doctor's offices and things were really confusing, Edwin the nurse at Dr Jains office help me straighten everything out got me an appointment with Dr Jain who was wonderful he took the time to listen to me answered all my questions it was comforting to feel listened to. The woman who did my ultrasound unfortunately I don't remember her name but she was also very helpful .I highly recommend this practice.
