November 8, 2018 6:00 PM

The first time I called to make an appt. for Oct. check-up was in early July. I was told all appt. slots were full and I would be put on a wait list. I thought this was odd. In mid August I called again and was able to make an appt. for a time that worked for me. The first person I spoke to in July must have been a new hire & didn't know how to register a patient for an appt.

November 1, 2018 7:00 PM

They accommodated me for a pap smear I needed as part of testing to be a kidney donor they fit me in first thing and faxed results to Loyola. Very helpful!
