The friendlyness

It's great that you're using electronic means to capture patient information. Everyone is very friendly and competent and the doctor was wonderful to talk to.

#32020-11-04

The openness and friendliness. The doctor was very careful to make sure I understood. Thanks. The fact that you urged me to come back for an annual exam I consider very kind and caring.

I have been extremly impressed with this practice.

My first time experience was great and there are no improvements that I can suggest at this time.

#32021-01-03

I had problems with my insurance. Since you took my insurance information over the phone it might have been nice to know that before I came in so I could have fixed it.

#42011-05-19 10:14:50

Almost too methodical - thought of one more 15 second type question after Dr. left re one spot not noted - would have waited some time to have her look at it. Told no time until lunch.

#52011-11-03 10:28:10

Everything was great

#62021-02-24

Just keep up the good work!

#72020-12-16

The service is wonderful nothing needs to be changed.

#82020-12-16

keep doing what u doing keep up the good work!!!!

#92021-08-20

Today I had to wait 45 min. to see the Doctor. I understand that sometimes other appointments run over but I took time off work to come here and I felt like I spent most of my time here waiting to see her.
