I had blood test that were posted on MyChart very quickly for me to view so no one personally contacted me beforehand. Receptionist was nice and helpful but the girl in back to check out was not.

When I was picking up my result filled out by my PCP, the receptionist could not find the form. I waited 25-30 min. for them to look for the form. I had an appointment for my daughter so I was in a hurry. They look very unorganized in the reception area and medical assistants. But my doctor is the best!! She is amazing & would love to continue seeing her.
100
