Dr. was great, however, the receptionist that makes appointments for future visits, never got me rescheduled for another visit. She said she would call me, but has yet to do it. In addition, the Dr. ordered some additional heart monitoring be done, she said she didn't know if insurance would cover it, and COULD NOT make an appointment for it until the insurance cleared it. Again I am still waiting to hear from her. Not sure she should be doing what she is doing, just didn't seem to be happy or care. Not a good position for her when you have to deal with people all day. I wish I new her name to pass on to you. It was the young brunette girl working at the appointment desk on 1-3-19 at 2 pm.
