My visit was good, was seen in under 15 minutes, my only complaint is scheduling when I used the Zocdoc app, each and every time I schedule with the times listed I'm asked to reschedule, which always conflicts with my schedule

Although it was a long wait I felt that it was worth the wait. Also I thought the wait could have been due to my late appointment and most doctors fall behind due to unexpected issues during the day.

Total waste of time and money. Would love to get a refund. Did not like her energy. Many of the hospital visits I've had in the past the health professional would smile when they came into the treatment room. Felt asif I were pulling teeth to obtain options for my condition. Was told I shouldn't purchase nail care products from the dollar store. Hmmm, I haven't shopped at a dollar store in years, what made you assume I did? The receptionist was very personably. Her attitude fooled me about the type of care I was to receive.

I thought the session went as well as expected for a first visit. It was an opportunity to get acquainted and feel the doctor out. The doctor made me feel comfortable and at ease. As far as whether or not Iwould recommend the doctor to others, it is to early to tell. I'll be in a better position to give an evaluation after my next visit which will result in a procedure to address a toenail problem. How things go before and after the procedure will put me in a better situation to evaluate the doctor. Overall, today was a good initial meeting.

I was seen 4 minutes after arriving. There is a dog so if you don't like dogs, ask them to put it away. I appreciated the wide range of appointment times and the doctor explained my options clearly and took a good deal of time to answer my questions.

Dr. Robinson was professional and very knowledgeable about my situation. She explained my situation in very plain language so I could understand the procedure that was about to take place. Additionally, Dr. Robinson was quite reassuringthat the slight discomfort from the procedure would be better in 24 hours, and it was. Although I had many questions, she was an extremely patient listener and answered them all.

Dr. Nelson is both personable and knowledgeable, the number one and two traits I consider to make an excellent doctor. Her RNs/office staff were personable and quick as well. The office is in a nicely decorated with comfortable chairs in the waiting area. Dr. Nelson was thorough and quick.

I waited over an hour to be seen and while sitting in the exam room I finally stepped out to see why the wait was so long and when the doctor finally came to see me she claimed she had noknowledge of me being there. Said the staff never informed her. Also there was a dog running around in the office. But I honestly did like her once we met, but I did not appreciate the initial unprofessional behavior
