Dr. Ignacio was very helpful and got right to the point. I forgot to ask about the numbers for my blood pressure and weight when the nurse took them, and she did not offer the numbers aloud, maybe because I had family present?

Waited 1 hour to see provider. Felt listened to, but wish we had made a more concrete plan to resolve long-term health issues, including how follow-ups with specialists would tie all together.

I arrived 15 minutes early to check in - as requested, I always have to wait beyond my appointment time before I am taking to an examination room. This recent visit, I was called into the office 50 minutes past my appointment time scheduled. In the past I have had to wait 15 to 45 minutes before I am called in and the nurse assistant takes my vitals, etc.
