My philosophy of care is to listen to the patient carefully, examine them thoroughly, and treat them individually to the best of my ability. I believe that human beings are complex spiritual, intellectual, emotional, social, and physical organisms whose "health" represents a delicate balance. My job is to help patients regain or maintain balance and my relationship to them is primarily a personal commitment.

I waited at least 45 minutes to see this doctor. I was not told she was running late, or the approx start time, etc. I think it is HORRIBLE to wait that long - and then the actual "visit" was like 10 minutes?! I feel this is inappropriate - call me if the doctor is running late so I can adjust my schedule.

This is the 1st time in a LONG I made an appointment for an illness. Next time, I will go to the immediate care facility 5 mins from my house. Even if I have to wait 45 minutes there, at least the drive won't be bad or during rush hour. This just wasn't a pleasant experience due to the excessive wait time. Doctor was fine, I guess - I just needed to know if I was contagious and that question was never answered. And then my private information was verbally reviewed in the waiting area for all to hear. I would think this process could be handled with privacy.

After my blood test, the portal said to call and discuss results, as a few numbers were elevated. When I called I was informed the doctor was with another patient and would call me back, I told the receptionist that if I do not pick up due to me being at work, the doctor would leave a message. Was not called back and all of the sudden the portal said my numbers were fine. If there was something to discuss I would have liked to discuss it, it is MY health after all. I called back but never was able to get through to the doctor. The receptionist that answered my calls was also very abrupt and rude, she needs to work on her attitude. I've been a patient at this clinic for years and was VERY disappointed with the care I received.

The doctor told me she was going to get me a prescription, but did not make it clear that it would be electronic, nor that I wouldn't be able to pick it up right away. I waited in the office for 15 minutes after the visit. I only found out my prescription was electronic after I asked the receptionist to check into it. I then proceeded to pick up my prescription right away. When I got to the pharmacy, I found out it would be several hours before my prescription was ready.
