What WE DID WELL

(Answers:674)

I was very pleased with the service that was provided during my visit. No waiting, excellent service, thorough exam. Overall, it was a pleasure - not usually the case with most doctor's visits these days!

I thought the waiting room was very nice and all the employees were very kind and took their time during the appointment. Our last dernatologist that we visited for the first time made us wait an hour and a halve for a five minute appoitment.....so we were pretty happy this time!

N/A. Everything was great!

#22017-04-28

Overall excellent service. Friendly front desk staff. A very small suggestion would be to have someone immediately identify themselves as the person to register a new patient and direct where to go when someone enters the waiting room. With a big waiting room and three people at the front desk, it is a lot to take in and not know to whom to speak. Having had negative experiences with doctors' receptionists where all three of the three people at the front desk have ignored me until I called out and forced a response, I am sensitive to the issue and imagine others have had this experience as well.

#32011-01-31 10:42:48
