It was a very good physical with Dr. Romain. She wasn't rushed and I was able to address all of my concerns.

I enjoy my visits with Dr. Romain. She is efficient and straight-forward. I always feel well-informed of my diagnosis and treatment plan. At the end of the visit, she finished and left the room. I had to gather my things andgo to check-out but it would've been nice if a MA could walk me out. The conclusion felt very cold.

I scheduled the appointment ahead of time and arrived early. I was taken into the exam room 15 minutes past the scheduled time. The nurse was very thorough. I then waited 45 minutes for the doctor. Doctor Romain came in, spentno more than 4 minutes with me, and did not answer my questions - even though I preloaded them into the patient portal at the practice. Once I received my results back, I had to call - twice. The nurse called me back and told me I had some abnormal results. I requested to speak with the doctor - the nurse informed me she was "busy" but assured me she "wouldn't be too concerned" with the results. When I told her I was, in fact, concerned, she just said "yea, and have a good night" and hung up. Very disappointed.
