I had a great experience with everyone I encountered yesterday! From check in, to the nurse who took my vitals, to Gilda and Dr. Neuwirth... everyone was extremely personable AND helpful. Couldn't believe they did X-rays on the spot with instant review. Excellent.

The Nurse Practitioner (Gilda) and Doctor were wonderful. I felt they focused on my issues, listened to my concerns, carefully evaluated me and conservatively diagnosed me. Everything before them was not so great. I arrived 25 minutes earlyto fill out forms and sign all the legal stuff. The front desk was mostly rude, seemed utterly disorganized and were quick to offer two other clients information on how to complain to their managers. Perhaps they take a lot of crap from people... At my appointment time I finally got the forms. (I asked on arrival and again after 15mins. I also offered my MRI files so they could be uploaded but they didn't want to take them.). I rushed filling out all the paper work and waited. I got called fairly soon their after however none of my information was inputted so I answered verbally all the basic questions in the room. There were just so many administrative points where a lot of time could have been saved.

Firstable Due to my Job I was late, I had called the Dr's office five minutes before my appointment letting them know that, they said it was OK, so I kept going there, as soon I got there I did fillthe forms?? In order to save time I did online previously, so I did again at the office, so I don't know what is the purpose filling the forms online. Dr. N. saw me and told me four times I was late and he had not enough time to spend with me but doesn't matter how late I was he is going to claim my visit to the insurance and he is going to get paid for a regular and no rush visit, I wa expecting more from him but I do not recommended him, get on time at your appt. I am pretty sure you be treated the same. Later on I saw him walking around??? Need time?

Dr. Neuwrith was thorough and suggested that I take an MRI. A day after the MRI was done, he personally called me with the results (later I received the CD) and he explained my options. I choose to go the wayof epidural injections to see if my problem clears up. I was impressed with everyone at the office from the clerks, staff, and of course, Dr. Neuwirth. --- thank you
