This evening (Friday!) around 5 I visited the Urgency room for the first time. You would think there would be a long wait as everyone gets off work, but I was seen almost as soon as I finished my paper work. The waiting room was very comfortable and welcoming. The staff were extremely friendly and efficient. A nurse came in right away, took care of me, and let me know there were one or two patients in front of me.  Not even 10 minutes later Dr. Shafe came in.  He was so friendly, personable, and very thorough. He took exceptional care of me and all my needs. They even filled my prescriptions there quickly, and for a very reasonable price! I wish he could be my primary care physician! Thank you so much Dr. Shafe and staff!
