I saw Amy, the PA, but was very pleased with her service. She listened carefully, asked appropriate questions and examined me professionally. She prioritized my issues and confidently determined a plan of treatment. She answered my questions clearly and did not rush to conclude the exam. I felt much less concerned after the visit having had her professional review.

Takes > 30 minutes after checking vitals before the doctor shows up and then does not address all the notes the nurse has taken .

Had a 940 appointment was called approximately at that time. I saw 2 nurses one to take weight and measure, bp, pulse and oxygen rate from a finger meter. Second nurse took my history, the reason why I was there and got the prescriptions by mail set up. He is a nice man but he is very busy, I was told he takes a lot of time with patients that need to talk about their issues which does put him behind at times. After we talked for a couple of minutes, he sent me down to the lab to get my blood tested. So it took a full hour from the time I entered to the time I left at 1040.

I love this place and this doctor and his PA. Everyone is kind and polite and patient. You never have to wait very long. The rooms are decorated so cool that they make you feel calm. The doctor (and his PA) spends time with you, and never acts as if they are in a big rush. They take good care of you. This is the type of doctor and doctor's office everyone wishes for.

I've been going here since I was 13, I'm 28 now. I waited over an hour and then when he finally came in, he was there for 3 minutes. Completely dismissed anything I had to say or was concerned over and walked out. Not happy and considering finding a new primary care doctor.
