I AM A PATIENT AT THIS CLINIC. THE STAFF NEEDS TO HAVE MORE TRAINING. THEY HAVE CAUSED ME TO BE PUT IN THE HOSPITAL TWICE WITH THEIR STUPID MISTAKES. SOME OF THEIR ATTITUDES ARE TERRIBLE TOO. I HAVE BEEN THEIR 6 YEARS AND I HOPE TO GET A TRANSPLANT SOON SO I CAN LIVE A GOOD LIFE FOR A WHILE. DON'T GET ME WRONG SOME OF THE STAFF ARE THE BEST. AS FAR AS THE BUILDING GOES IT IS TOO SMALL AND THE LOBBY GETS OVER CROWDED.
