Too much duplicate paperwork to register, too many forms, you should automate and streamline forms with electronic signature or print out form at end of online session and sign once

That Dr. Estes only spent about 5 minutes with me. He did not even examine or check out my knees and legs at all. Dr. Estes did not even have in stock several different types / different kinds of the prescriptionsknee cap braces for me. Dr. Estes also did have the options for me to try out several different types / different kinds of prescriptions knee cap braces by putting in the orders and requesting this for me.

The staff is incredible - front desk, x-ray technician, scribes, PA - very professional and efficient. Dr. Estes gets right to the point with arriving at possible diagnoses and what direction to take from there. Everyone there is a good steward of their own time and yours. Very pleased.

I really like the doctor but the office staff at front desk need improvement. I understand the paperwork took 50 minutes to get back to the assistant. I arrived at 9:35 for a return visit and appt at 9:40 waited unitl10:30 to be called back and watched others with appts at 10 and 10:30 called in prior.
