Overall a great experience. I understand we are in a pandemic but the front desks ladies at check out by the entrance way double doors did not great me nicely. As I stood there they stared at me like "what do you want". I explained that I had received my insurance information and wanted to see if they could add it to my chart or if I could email the information to them. They looked at me like I was asking for too much. Ended up giving me their email address but I am honestly not sure if they even went through with it. Just be nice we are all confused and struggling with the way things are changing ask if you can help instead of just giving a stare down.

The receptionist outside & the PA were excellent. The rest of the medical staff acted like the visit was an imposition on their time.

From check in to being asked to come into the office, we waited 25 minutes in our car. Was not happy.
