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.

What can we do better?

(answers:373)

Cannot think of anyway to improve things, unless you want to serve hot tea and cappachino!

#12011-02-22 11:25:39

you cannot serve me any better than I was served today

#22024-01-25

it's a little thing, but when you enter an office and ask the receptionist attending to you how are you, she say fine, but does not inquire how you are, and is not engaging, I just think its rude.

#32023-10-07

Everything was well above my expecatations.

#42023-11-02

I am new here, so I don't have any suggestions at this time

#52023-10-26

Can't think of anything. I feel good about this visit.

#62010-09-09 11:47:56

Service was excellent, keep up your service as is.

#72023-12-25

you cannot serve me any better than I was served today

#82024-04-16

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

#92023-11-28

I have a suggestion: I noticed that two of the lovely rugs pose hazards to patients using walkers or who may have other mobility issues. The large rug placed at an angle and the narrow rug placed in front of the reception desk leave no room for these individuals to safely manuveur around the reception area and are likely to contribute to fall risks. I would suggest leaving these areas clear.
