He did a reasonably good job. It was a simple treatment for a simple problem. The overall experience was excellent. There was nothing exceptional, but nothing negative either. There were no difficulties. The staff was fine. He is a quirky kind of guy, but I have no complaints about him. He explained everything to me. One minor thing is not responding as expected.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I was there for a checkup.
