There was a long wait line to check in upon arriving at the provider's office. There were three people in line ahead of me and two people behind me. Only one person was available to check in customers.

I have found Dr. Eardley to be a wonderful physician. however [...] it's nearly impossible to get a same-day appointment when I need one. I ended up seeing a lot of other providers instead, making the care inconsistent and slowing a diagnosis.

My provider did not ask me about a recent medical experience I had in order to find out what had actually occurred, but went on the assumption that a report she received & I had never read, was accurate, when in fact it had many errors based on inaccurate & missing information. She started from the premise that the report was accurate & I was not being accurate. A simple " I got a report, tell me what happened" would have corrected the misinformation from the beginning.

Doctor had placed notes in medical file about annual lab tests, but upon arrival at lab, they had no orders, and required an OV to be seen before lab tests could be done. MD's office staff (med asst) needs to be aware that lab orders system needs lab orders not older than 90 days, and place orders accordingly, instead of making patient run around to figure out this issue. Train the med asst correctly.
