outstanding doctor.

Reviewed on November 25, 2019 2:04 PM

It is always difficult to make an appointment with Dr. December. They (receptionist who answered the calls) don't know her schedule. They always state someone will call in 45 minutes, but takes a day before someone will leave a message round the time office is closing. By the time I get the message, the office is already closed. It took me 4 different calls and 3 days before I was able to make an appointment. Dr. December is an excellent physician, but I am tempted to see another doctor of the same skills & knowledge with an office who is more patient friendly & knows customer service. I hope with my feedback a remedial action will be implemented on giving prompt appointment date & time. Thank you.

my appointment was one of the first days of the epic conversion and things at the front desk were a mess. I was one of the first appointments of the day so at the start was not bad wait. but at the end of the appointment was a different matter. The doctor mentioned I would be getting other MD and testing referral info from the front desk and the front desk did not have it. (visit summary?) I had do wait 8 min in a line to check out but then did not have the info I was waited for. Asked to have it mailed to me - said to look on the portal - was not there the next day either. Looked up referred specialist myself and made appointment. could understand that there was confusion, but it did not help matters that the "trainer?" was just standing there as everything was going crazy
