May 16, 2020 4:36 AM

March 11, 2020 8:17 PM

Reception/ check-in desk clerk was friendly, polite, and efficient but x-ray/ lab clerk was rude and busy texting on her cell phone. X-ray tech was exceptionally efficient, pleasant and personable.

February 24, 2020 4:58 PM

always a good experience.

February 18, 2020 4:45 PM

The receptionist at the area where I went to have blood drawn was not attentive. I checked in with her upon arrival. After waiting 30 minutes and seeing other patients who arrived after me be called for their service. I asked the person who draws the blood when was I going to be called. She checked with receptionist and I had not been put into the queue correctly so I probably would not have been called if I didn't inquire. What a waste of time. I waited so long before inquiring because I know everyone is not there for the same service. This person needs additional training.

February 18, 2020 10:22 AM

Dr.John listened to everything I had to say. He is a very caring doctor and knows what is best for you.

February 18, 2020 10:22 AM

January 25, 2020 7:16 AM
