When I first started coming to this practice I was a bit nervous. But once I sat down with my first provider i felt that i was exactly where i needed to be. The waiting rooms at the time weren't crowded which helped with my anxiety. And the staff made the checkin process quick and stress free. Now four of my family members are seen at Mindpath.
