Cons: on The website I filled out a request for an appointment one morning, by the next afternoon no one had contacted me so I called and made my new patient appointment Easily. I wasn’t informed that there is a patient portal. I wasn’t informed that there was a glitch with mapping apps. When I arrived, I let the front office staff know that my GPS took me to the Children’s Hospital building instead of Walker bldg. She told me they were aware and have tried to correct this. I recommend informing new patients of that. Pros: Woman at the front desk was very warm and welcoming. Appointment was basically on time - only a short wait. I appreciate the cleanliness and Covid precautions. Dr Garrett was Personable, caring, thorough, And professional. Her demeanor gave me confidence. I especially appreciate her taking the time to explain medicine costs and making sure that my prescriptions are as affordable as possible. When I remembered a question as she was about to leave the exam room, she came back and stood right in front of me, made eye contact and made sure that she answered my question. That speaks volumes.
