  • I went in as a walk in yesterday after 5pm. My doctor recommended that I go at that time. When we arrived the front desk rep came out with a wheelchair to help me in the building. They were very friendly at the front desk. The check in is a little too much, but I was in the back quickly. (After hours is best.) The nurse, x-ray tech and PA were kind, friendly, and patient with me because I had a lot of questions and concerns. My fiance is a talker and they even entertained him. I have to say the experience was great. I recommend after hours 5-7 weekdays.
