“they always listen”

I have only been with Thousand Oaks for a short time but my experience with them has been amazing. They are always quick to get me in and whenever I am in they take care of everything quickly and efficiently. When I have issues they always listen and it is easy to talk to every member of their staff because they are friendly and upbeat . I love them so much that my mom is now going to see them as well.
