Wait time
Bedside manner
I had an early morning appointment and after I was called back, I was seen very quickly. I usually have a later appointment and have to wait even after being called back. I was very happy with the quickness of beingseen at this last appointment. I also appreciate the fact that Dr. Banegura takes the time to listen. He never makes me feel like I am rushed or that he is in a hurry to move onto the next patient. That is very reassuring.

Other than the wait, it was a good visit. Dr. Banegura listened and took thorough notes and worked with me on the next steps in my GERD treatment.
