“My husband and I were in Bayfield visiting our daughter when I began experiencing vertigo for the first time. Our daughter suggested we come to your facility. I was pleased with the care I received from the receptionist who checked us in, the nurse who took us back to the exam room, and the doctor who treated me. Thank you for taking the time and effort to make people feel comfortable and cared for while at Durango Urgent Care.” – S.H., Glasgow, Montana
