Bad timing on scheduling. Dr. Out for surgery. One receptionist was outright rude. Told me to go to .ed stop if I had a problem and hung up.I have never been able to make the portal work. If I am able to open it there is nothing there. No reports or information.I have also had almost any phone calls from your office go to a spam folder. My telephone provider tried to fix it and then told me they think the problem is on your end. A receptionist said she had heard same complaint from other patients.I really like the doctors I have nseen and think they are doing a good job.the issues I have had are all most all with the system.

Kristen understands her patients, all while maintaining a professional boundary. She's not a robot who just checks in and says bye. She cares and works with you to find the best solution to whatever issue you bring to the table. Myself and multiple other people from my workplace see her. We all agree she's the best and we enjoy our dr visits.

Always a breeze coming here, checking in with the staff and scheduling my next appointment at the end. Front desk can be gossipy in front of patients but what workplace isn't? I get it. I enjoy coming here. Super fast, clean, never a huge wait in the lobby and always able to answer my questions whatever they may be. Kristen V is super understanding and professional during my visits. She hears my concerns and we work together to find the best option for the issue.
