Nestled just a couple blocks from the world famous Sunset Strip, Exhale Med Center sits tucked away inside of a building, hidden amongst a maze of doors in an inside strip mall kind of setting. On the side street (where most people park) is even an information booth with a staff member ready to answer any of your questions prior to your arrival at Exhale. Rounding the building, you are directed by a sign through a hall with a glass door and kind of finding my way from there to the courtyard and frosted glass with the logo. Checking in at reception was nice, and had an almost small art gallery vibe to it. It didn’t feel too cramped and the lights were turned down which was a nice touch. There is water for the patients, and plenty of chairs so it didn’t feel cramped despite there being quite a few people waiting to enter the budroom. The forms and verification were quick and the staff was polite throughout the process and I didn’t feel like the staff was stressed despite the heavy workload. The wait to get into the budroom awhile however, as the size of the budroom only allowed for maybe 10 inside at a time while still maintaining security and control over it and I picked a particularly busy day to go. Once I was good to go I was guided through the door next to the reception desk and I walked in.
