Dr. Singh and all the people we saw on his staff and in your imaging group were fantastic. Everyone we encountered on our visit were a pleasure to deal with including an unrelated employee who went out of her way to direct us to the check in desk.The only difficulty we had was with parking. Outdoor Valet lots were blocked by gates and unattended. Machines at a nearby unrestricted parking garage had buttons to dispense parking tickets but those and the help buttons didn't work. An XRAY technician parking in a nearby reserved spot directed us to a lot that worked out.I had researched parking using Google Maps and Satellite View and did not expect problems. Fortunately, we left Western NY early - so managed to check in on time.
