Dr. Alexis was good, however, I had to wait a long time to be seen by her. Before even going in, and after waiting a good half hour, they told me they needed x-rays before anything. I went in, but thex-ray technologist did not seem to know what he was doing. He asked me to remove my bra strap "underneath" my clothes and didn't even bother to look away or leave the room. After taking the x-rays he didn't know where he should take me and started yelling in the hallway "where should I put this patient", yelling until the doctor's assistant called me to go the other side of the hallway. Overall, not very pleasant. After another 25-30 minutes of waiting in a room, I finally met Dr. Colvin, who was very knowledgeable but also very fast.

Dr. Colvin was attentive, detail oriented and very warm and approachable. I went to see her for a second opinion and I felt that her exam was much more thorough than the previous doctor I saw. I was glad I decidedto seek another opinion. I would definitely recommend Dr. Colvin and would gladly go back.

The doctor didn't bother to see me before she sent me to an x-ray room through her technician. Exposed me to rays for no good reason. She should have seen me first and then sent me for x-rays. I have anadvice for her that she needs to work on her patient-centered skills. It is very important!!!

Dr Colvin was very knowledgeable and took her time to talk me through all my options. The lady who did the x-ray was equally knowledgable and put me at ease as soon as we met. The wait times and operations ofthe practice however were very poor. I arrived and waited over half hour for my x-ray. I then waited at least another half hour to see the doctor and finally when the appointment was finished i was asked to wait for my follow on referral details. I waited for a while before asking for help. I was told that i would be attended to momentarily. I waited a while longer and eventually had to leave without my follow up details. Very good medical staff. A lot of improvement needed on the patient care and operations.
