Patient Reviews

Pap Smear

Front desk receptionist lost the 5 star rating because she was not 5 star

Annual Well Woman Exam

Check-in process repetitive - I completed pre-checkin on line in advance and then had to complete the same process via the kiosk when I arrived. I was then asked to complete a questionnaire.

Ashley August is the best. Always quick, easy and makes it comfortable to talk

Thankful for the digital experience here FINALLY. Wait times got so much better during covid but this appointment we were back to the old days with a 45+ minute wait. Things happen and I'm sure there was a good reason and everyone was apologetic. I just want is a heads up if they're running behind so I can arrive at the right time and not sit around that sad waiting room wondering when I'll be called. QR code somewhere else for check in would be helpful too because I waited a while to check in since another patient was filling out her paperwork at the receptionist window when I could have been filling things out right when I arrived.

When I arrived for my appointment for 9 am it was not on the schedule. I made this appointment 4 months ago. It turns out there were other patients as well whose appointments were not on the schedule, and new patients were rescheduled. Apparently, there was a computer conversion and the appointments were not switched over and the staff were not aware. They were able to fit me in and I am grateful for that. The Staff and Dr. Canova were, as usual, lovely. My complaint would be with the managing of administrator who let this happen

They switched to a new system and I was there for almost 2 hours. But the staff and Kelsey are always amazing. So 5 stars to them.
