January 27, 2020 4:36 PM

good but rushed and abrupt

January 27, 2020 2:52 PM

I had an x-ray done, per the doctor's request. I was told that the results will be available within two days, and I would receive a call from the doctors office. I never received the call, so I called for (4) days. No one never returned my phone calls. I had to make a trip to the doctor's office, to find out the results of the x-rays. I was told by Dr. Smith's assistant that she receives 300 calls a day, and she can't return all calls. Then she apologized, for not returning my call. This is totally unacceptable.

January 27, 2020 12:21 PM

Dr. Smith is always pleasant & question how my grandchildren are doing.

January 26, 2020 5:12 AM

Appears to be rushed & it doesn't always allow an chance to mention what is bothering me or need to discuss specific issue .

January 25, 2020 7:19 AM

There is always a problem when I call and leave a message for my doctor to get back to me with an answer or information I need. Sometime I have to make more than one call.
