10 - my phone calls were always answer & my question were answered and if they couldn't answer right then, they always called back.

Spent time answering all of my questions. was very open and honest about my condition, treatment options, and his recommendations.
June 20, 2019
Though the overall experience was positive I do have some complaints about the process as there was wasted time & resources. I wish the doctor had ordered labs and tests (with an explanation) prior to the appointment. Now I have to get some labs and test then meet with him again which is a waste of time. Also, why did I have to fill out paperwork at the appointment when I could have filled out on MyChart during my pre-registration (this was also duplicated in person at the appointment with the Nurse Practitioner going through all of the same questions).

Spent time to review and explain what tests, etc., needed to be done... apparent the dr. knew what he was talking about.
