  • "I thought this was an emergency clinic and walked in with Ginger the day after Christmas. Unfortunately, they are not an emergency clinic but asked me what was going on. I told them about Ginger's breathing and it was getting worse. The front desk staff checked with the doctor who said she had 15 minutes before her next appointment and agreed to see Ginger. They ended up spending over an hour with us and keeping Ginger all afternoon due to some blood work not looking good. The care, concern and follow up treatment we have received has been exceptional. More tests are being run on Ginger and we do not know her diagnosis yet but the care we are receiving from this staff has been exceptional. Thank you Dr. Miani and staff for your concern and care for Ginger!!!"
