Clinic has improved efficiency significantly since my last visit a few years back.
Apr 9, 2019
I prefer to have eye contact with my provider rather than having her attention on her computer
Apr 9, 2019
I had to ask the questions in order to get the information that I felt she should be giving me. in addition I was unhappy that the records that were sent from my previous doctor twice actually we're not available
Apr 8, 2019
Very friendly and easy to talk to the doctor. But I didn't get a thorough explanation of a particular concern, nor an explanation of the limited lab requests. Because it took so long to get the appointment, I think there is too much time between certain tests. When I called back with questions, I did receive a better explanation from the nurse.
