The nurse who called me in to see the Dr. never spoke to me. She just led the way and nodded to get on the scale and motioned for me to follow her. A "Hi, Stella, how are you today?" would have been a nice greeting. It seemed like a "cold" reception.
Feb 5, 2020
Was not expecting a "care provider". He was new to me and my first thought was that the Dr. assigned me to someone else until it was explained that the Dr. was there and he would come in to say "Hi" to me. My second visit with the provider he explained when he came in that he was working with the Dr.

I arrived early fully expecting to wait till my appointment time. However was registered quickly and taken in for my appointment based on "first come, first serve". I appreciated that but was not expecting it.

My reason for not recommending is that the parking is horrendous and when you need a walker to reach the office it is sometimes a major effort. There is not ample provision for handicapped access to the building.
