Dr. Bansal and his staff are excellent! My problem is with the on-line system - It took me several tries to get Dr. Bansal, and my other specialists to appear in MyChart! It was frustrating - and although I understand the system conversion, it arbitrarily eliminated dr.'s from my history I had not seen in a couple years.

My experience with the provider was good. However, scheduling the appointment was very difficult and I almost went outside Dryer. The phone lines were down at least twice and I was told several times I was unable to schedule so far out. Yet, when I finally was able to schedule, I had to wait three weeks past the week I wanted to initially schedule. Scheduling this appointment was an extremely frustrating experience.

With the transition period of My Chart to Aurora Advocate Chart, it took three weeks to finally be able to talk to someone to schedule a colonoscopy. I ended up contacting my regular provider to contact Dr. Bansals office for someone to call me. I was placed on hold 3 times for 20 minutes or longer and no one was able to help. it was NOT a good experience.

Everything ok until I went a week later to get colonoscopy prep and pharmacy didn't have order. Turns out the office failed to resolve issue with order for past week or to notify me. So I drove 22 miles round trip for nothing and now will have to drive back in the snow again to get the prep. Not acceptable. I understand why/how computers detect interactions and allergies, but the buck still stops with the humans!
