I had to have an emergency appointment and was accomodated the same day with an appointment later that day. Unfortunately, Tysons/ Beltway/rush-hour traffic resulted in me being 30 minutes late. Nonetheless, Dr. Bolding still saw me even though it meant my appointment and the repair of my appliance would keep her well past 6pm. Lovely doctor, very pleasant experience.
