It did not appear there was any prep before my appointment as the Dr, asked if she had seen me before and I had just had a physical in July. I was expecting that there at least would have been some review of the results of my tests from an emergency room visit prior to the appointment but there was not and she reviewed them during our time together and made quick decisions. Also, there was a conflict in correspondence I received about having another pap smear next year and when I was in My Chart it showed as the next pap smear in 2019. So there was not good coordination between the Dr and whoever inputs the info in My Chart. She made additional notes in my profile to make sure that was addressed.

I came in to get a referral for an MRI. I was told I was not in pain long enough to get one. After the appointment I contacted my insurance and told them what I was told. They told me that as long as I get a referral it would be covered and not sure why I would be told I need to be in pain for a certain amount of time. I also sat in the waiting room for 45 minutes before the doctor came in. This happens every time I or my family comes into this clinic.

08/31/2016
on this visit my provider didn't recognize me as one of her patients and asked me "have I ever seen you before?" she also asked me why I was using the medication she prescribed to me which seemed odd because she was looking right at my chart and I just felt really awkward, like she didn't know who I was.

receptionist talk too loud, makes me uncomfortable bec they verify my name, address, phone nbr, emergency contact every single time and it feels like the whole waiting room can hear my information. They so this to others as well and I can hear their phone conversations and medical problems of other patients from the waiting room.

This provider, in particular, did not do a physical exam for my main concern, barely listened to or looked at me, and acted as if she couldn't wait to get out of the room/get away from me. She is not very professional, cannot multi-task, and overall not a good doctor (in my opinion).
