My experience with Dr. Scrimmager was decent. The wait wasn't too long, Dr. Scrimmager did all the tests I needed, and I got out of his office quickly. His office did not process one of my tests, however, and I didnot receive the results I needed. I called to ask about them, and never received a call back. I'm pretty disappointed.

I felt that it was a good visit. The doctor was nice and did answer all of my questions. I only did not like that my Appt is at 12:45 but I am not seen until 2pm. He saw another personbefore me that came after me, but I assume that's the issue with all doctors by other than that it was good.

I went to get a check-up and I think he forgot to do the actual check-up. Told him about my sinuses, he had no advice. He kept checking his phone the whole time. He mentioned that I had an enlargedthroat (whatever that means) and asked me if I stopped breathing while I was sleep (and I'm like not that I'm aware - I can't really monitor myself while Im sleep!). I had to remind him to take my weight and height. Then he brought in a little cheap scale. He didn't do anything that I remember getting done the last time I had a physical except check my blood pressure! Not to mention the elevators weren't working so I had to walk up 6 flights of stairs only to find out that he was actually in the other wing of the building so I had to go back down 6 flights. Furthermore he took blood samples from me and stated he would call me in a week but I have yet to hear from him.

My appointment was good as usual. What I like about Dr, Scrimmager is that when I describe a symptom or problem; he shares with me the need to treat it and to follow up. I need that kind of encouragement as I tend to procrastinate.

the office wasn't crowded so, I was able to enter a room less than five minutes of arrival. however, it took a while before I actually met with the doctor. over thirty minutes passed my appointment and I'm not sure ifthat's due to the doctor being on break or still with another patient.
