Everyone at the medical center north was professional, and helpful. The times I have seen Dr. Alstadt, I was seen in time, and the office is very efficient. His nurse, Kristen(?) is always very helpful, asks appropriate questions, and provides answers easy to understand. The office runs well, and responds in a timely manner when I have needed help.
