My primary care physician said I would be called to make an appointment, but after a week, I had heard nothing, so called my physician's office. It all worked out, even though it was a bit late. My appointment, the care I was given, the boot that was fitted for my ankle, all were done very well. I am pleased and being helped greatly.

Every time I go there, my name is mispronounced terribly. Should be some way to get some consistency, or have a nickname in the system. Long wait times. Appreciate having the online forms available for completion - very helpful. Doctors and medical staff are very knowledgable and helpful for getting back to full function.
