The waiting time was the main issue that threw me off the line especially when I had to wait in the exam room for over 1/2 hour and I'd noticed the doctor was seeing a patient who came after me.

The nurses and women at the front desk were very helpful and kind. I was seen in a short amount of time and able to make the appointment the night before. Dr. Hammett was very nice but the whole appointment took20 minutes or less. I was never asked to provide an extensive medical history (and it was my first time visiting). For example, she didn't ask or have a record of the medications I was on. Additionally, she went to go put in blood work and have the nurse come and she never came back. I had to ask the nurse if the doctor was finished with me because it was so unclear and very brief. The nurses were apologetic and friendly but I was disappointed to not receive a through check-up.

My doctor visit went great, better than expected. Although, your ZocDoc forms/info (I filled out online) were not available for the office. It was very disappointing to think I was all set and ready for a smooth 'no forms' appointment onlyto have to refill everything I already submitted online via Zocdoc.

it was ok. I felt like I wasted my time. I was there for about 2 hrs and spoke with her for about 5-10 mins. somewhat answered my questions, I went there for an annual physical but they told me thatI have to reschedule that because my appointment would only be getting to know the doctor and Etc. I wish someone would've told me that earlier.
