May 02, 2019
The only frustration I have with this clinic is scheduling: once, only once, I needed some special, unique labs. The receptionist who was scheduling at my doctor's area was only able to tell me what she couldn't do...she was not a problem solver. That was disappointing.
April 12, 2019

Went first to lab and when I was done was instructed to go to Drs. waiting area. The lab didnt notify thr Drs, office when I was done so had to sit there another 45 minutes til I went and checked. The lab did not inform them that I was done. Then got in the and had to sit another 40 minutes before the Dr came in to my room. Had a 1:15 apt, didnt get out of there til 3:15.

February 27, 2019
Left feeling like I obtained no useful guidance or medical care related to my visit. Doctor seemed apprehensive or unwilling to help with the medical reason for my visit due to their personal beliefs.
February 27, 2019
I forgot to ask about flue shot. Might be good idea to have nurse or Dr ask patient.

Dr Knapp and nurse are truly 'care ' providers.

The general receptionist is not always the friendlist. I also take my elderly mother to this clinic, different doctor. She rolls her eyes & huffs. Not real impressed with her. Everyone else is very friendly, especially with elderly patients
