Extremely hard to get an appointment especially during an illness. My appointment last week due to an illness and recommended that I see m primary doctor 2-3 days after my urgent care visit, was not easy to get. I ended up taking an appointment we had scheduled for three weeks for my husband, but now he is another three weeks out for his appointment. my biggest complaint with this clinic is availability of appointments. seem to always be referred to urgent care if ill. if you can get in, it is not with your primary doctor and time choices are rare. [...] I love my physician but do not get to use her on short notice (when ill) mostly just for physicals and routine care which I do not need often.

I felt like I have had good care from this provider in the past, but that she has given up on me.

10/16/2016
My knee pain got a lot worse after the examination (and is still giving me a lot of increased trouble more than a week later) - and specifically I have increased pain at the sites where the doctor applied pressure in order to see where the problems were. I understand that this may have been necessary as part of attempting to make a diagnosis - but it's still a terrible thing to go through. Also, when I looked at my after visit summary, I saw that it said I was a long term user of insulin - but I have never used insulin. When I brought this to the doctor's attention, she said it was a computer error - but don't humans put the info. into the computer? [...] In general, I believe the medical practititoners at Providence are good.

I mentioned that I was still having problems with pain in my foot, even though the X-rays showed no problems. I indicated the pain was such I felt I could just work through it. She said "no" that was unacceptable and arranged for P.T. and an appointment with a foot specialist. I am now wearing an ankle brace that is alleviating my pain.

Dr. Alice is an outstanding physician! I have worked in health care for over 30 years and have NEVER experienced a physician of her caliber. she is excellent in every regard. Mom loves that she always wears a white coat and looks so professional. Mom comments every time she sees Dr. Alice that she looks professional "just like a doctor should look.". mom tells everyone how sweet her doctor is and how she treats her so nice. I am always impressed with the way she comes in smiling, and has reviewed mom's information and talks directly to mom without talking over her head. Dr. Alice calls personally and quickly with medical concerns or test results. [...]
