All of my interactions with the doctor were positive and we spoke about my medical concerns and he said a nurses assistant would follow up. When she came in the room it was as if they had not spoken and she asked me what I needed. I needed two immunization and they were out of one so she said they would order it.I got no follow up from the provider and so called to ask if they had gotten it in and the receptionist thought they did so I had another appointment and came just to find out they did not have it yet and they didn't know why the receptionist gave me an appointment. [...] Also I waited (in the waiting room) for forty minutes before the nurses assistant even saw me.
