The doctor was great. He was very nice and knowledgeable. He explained my condition to me well. Also, he really listened to everything I was telling him and made a judgement based on all the context and it all seemed rooted in common sense. However, I did not like the rest of the experience. The wait to be seen was substantially longer than anywhere else I've been. After the initial screening questions, I waited for another 30 minutes in a small hallway. A woman who was very sick was sat next to me. This made me nervous because I don't know how contagious she was and if I contracted what she had, it would be very problematic given what I was there for. Generally, at doctor's offices, they just put you in a room after they call you back and you wait there. That is a better system because presumable the room has been cleaned and you aren't just in a small unclean hallway in close proximity to other patients. Also, afterwards, a nurse wanted to collect samples that seemed unrelated to why I was there. I'm not sure if she had me confused with another patient. When asked her what was going on, she seemed angry with me and said she didn't know anything other than the fact that she was supposed to collect samples. Being a medical professional, I would think she should take a little more interest. In general, the staff here seemed a little unprofessional. When the nurse was asking me the basic questions, she was complaining a little about how tired she was and how it's been a long day. While waiting I could hear the nurses complain about patients and how much work they had to do. Everything was a little weird with no one was really empowered to help. I'm going to go find another doctor but I'm out the money for this visit, so this visit wasn't very helpful.
The doctor and staff were great. I had a long wait which is why I had to give it 3 stars, but it is also an immediate care clinic so unexpected things come up. While waiting in my room an assistant came in to let me know the wait time and offered if he could get me anything. I appreciated the update and the assurance that they would get to me as soon as possible. Once I met with Dr. Saeed he was very attentive and professional. I did not feel rushed at all while he was in the room. I would definitely return to this office. One piece of advice is that the street parking is paid parking so allow some extra time to make sure you won't get a ticket if your appointment lasts a little longer.
