The clinic is located on the west side of San Jose and has a private parking area and also additional parking space in front of the building. Access from the city and main roads is convenient and traffic is not heavy in this area. All the doctors offices and rooms were clean, modern and with good light conditions. Decoration and painting also gives a nice impression of a well maintained building. Equipment also looked up to date in terms of technology and conservation.
