Providence Health & Services Patient

the results of the [...] were presented to me by the person who performed the tests and left a great deal to be desired. Evidently the medical staff had their hands full with other things. I am sure this was just an oversight and not a common practice. My overall impression of the doctor and the staff was excellent.
