No suggestions. I was very impressed with everything and everyone I encountered during my visit.

This only has to do with your waiting room experience when I was there. And again, this was my first time there. There was someone waiting who used her cellphone the entire time, speaking in a loud voice. It was very disturbing. And it took away from my being able to concentrate to even read and fill out the forms. I think you should have a sign that says that if you need to use the cellphone, please step out of our office and either, you know, continue your conversation outside or in your car. And again, if it had been brief, that's one thing, but it was continual phone calls one after the other. Just a suggestion.
