I had a Brain MRI done [...]. After the office took forever to schedule the MRI, my provider never called with the results. Two months later I called and asked for them, was told I had to have an appt. It took about 4 months to get the results for the MRI. Pretty unacceptable.

I appreciate that the Doctor is taking time to read my past history and is checking with the staff pharmacist about appropriate medications for my care.

This was hands down the WORST experience I have ever had with a medical provider. Staff was unbelievably incompetent, rude, argumentative, snotty and clearly told the doctor their bias which then translated to the doctor's treatment of me. Doctor was completely dismissive, lacked knowledge of the neurological condition I was seeking treatment for and basically said "I'll just refer you to someone else." [...]

The provider wasn't friendly and I felt like I was wasting her time. I've been to a lot of doctors trying to find a solution to my medical problem and this interaction was disappointing.

My experience was great. The only thing I have a question about is the doctor wanted to run an EEG on me, but I haven't heard anything back about that yet. I also haven't heard back from my blood test, so I am assuming the test results are normal.
