June 26, 2019
Felt at ease as soon as i walked in the door for the situation at hand. Calming as could be.
June 18, 2019
when i went to check in at the front desk-no one was sitting at the desk
June 10, 2019
Very satisfied
June 07, 2019
My doctor gets a 10...however, registration gets a 1. I stood in line for 20 minutes on the main floor to find out I needed to now register on the second floor. It would take 2 minutes with a felt pen and a piece of paper to advise patients as they enter to go to the floor where their doctor's office is to register. That was a major irritation. I then waited again on the 2nd floor to register. I was in the building 25 minutes before my doctor knew I had honored my appointment. This is not acceptable.

All staff seem to respect patients, want to do all they can to help
