Even though I had a 9:30 a.m. appointment for this very first visit, I waited almost an hour (combined waiting room and exam room) before seeing the dr. Acck. The good thing is, the detailed exam and compassionate and knowledgable care from Dr. Jetmalani was exceptional. She's a 10.

dr Jetmalani is amazing. I live in Salem and I commute to Bridgeport just because she is great at her job. she listens to my concerns, my opinions and communicates in a way that makes it easy to understand what I need to do. You are lucky to have her as part of your staff. I won't use a healthcare provider who does not allow me to see her.

Dr. Jetmalani is absolutely wonderful. As a previous patient of hers I followed her to Providence. When I inquired about the high price of a medication, she took the time to call me at night after hours and walk me through a website that had coupons for lower prescription prices for the ointment that she prescribed.

How about 'Fair'? Two specific items in the Providence system are below par. first issue is the website. While I am most decidedly a member of the geezer club, and therefore technically challenged, I am not stupid. Trying to access ony one of my three physicians and/or their office staff via email is nearly impossible. In general trying to navigate the Providence web sight should come with three gratis appointments with proctologist of my choosing. Secondly, while ALL medical staff, i.e. physicians, nurses and medical technicians have been professional, helpful and friendly, the same cannot be said for the remainder of the staff. As long as one is standing in front of them, everything is fine; but just try to get medical records to another office, get a prescription refilled or ask other non-clinical questions answered and you may as well try to hit the moon spittin'.
