You may call or email us at any time to schedule an appointment and we will make every effort to respond to inquiries and/or appointment requests by the following business day.
3. Will someone get back to me so that I know an appointment has been scheduled?
Yes. When making an appointment, however, please propose a time that best suits your needs plus at least two alternative times that will work for you.
