I arrived early because my insurance had changed, and I wanted them to have time to record the new information. They did so promptly, took the standard vitals well before my appointment time, and got me in to see the doctornot long after that. Dr. Nee was great - I was looking for a prescription renewal and referral for mammogram, so no diagnosis needed. He asked questions, wrote the prescription and referral, suggested other tests I was overdue for, and I was on my way back to the train before my original appointment time!

He was unable to resolve my problem easily and failed to communicate in a way that allowed me to solve it elsewhere.

Dr. New is a nice person and so are his nurses. However, I did have to wait thirty extra may minutes to see him and then he excused himself to pick up a call. I would see him again but Iwould give my sitter advance notice that I might be late.

Polite, efficient. I would have liked him to be more personable and to at least have shaken my hand upon first introduction. I am looking for a long-term primary care doctor and he didn't necessarily sell himself. Nevertheless, Dr. Nee was professional and answered all of my questions.

I'm a regular of another doctor at the practice. The other doctor is one of my favorites. Doctor Nee questioned my medication, made me feel that that I had done something wrong, and generally made for an unpleasant experience. I'd highlyrecommend any of the other doctors at this practice.

Excellent experience! I haven't been to a doctor in over six years, and while having a job that doesn't offer health insurance, I now have Medicaid through the state. Dr. Nee and his staff didn't make me feel uncomfortable or treatme differently for having Medicaid, they welcomed me with open arms and made me feel comfortable during my appointment. I didn't feel rushed, and was able to communicate all my concerns with Dr. Nee. What a relief to find a doctor that is personable, friendly, and non judgmental. Would highly recommend Dr. James Nee and his staff!

I was surprised by how organized the people in reception were and how fast everything got done. Though I don't expect it every time, I was called at exactly 1:30 for my 1:30 appointment. The exam was thorough and I waswalking out the door at 2:00. I arrived at CVS in less than 15 minutes where my prescription was waiting for me.

I have to see a doctor several times before I know whether it is the right fit, but so far so good. I got all the meds and referrals I needed. The only thing I would change is that they needto have medical history forms for the patient to fill out. Even if we dont review it all at the first appt. the doctor can review it later. I also tend to forget about certain medical hx if I am not prompted by a questionaire.
