I wish we could wait in the car and just be texted to come in the office when it was our turn to go back to an office to limit an exposure to other folks in the waiting room. I think this could look better for safety purposes during the pandemic.

I sent this as an email as well...\ My ONLY concern was with the long wait time. I have no idea how much of that was a result of the pandemic or just a very busy day. The fact that I waiting a full hour was not even acknowledged when you walked in so my guess is that that is the norm... The only other similar appointment I've made recently was with my dentist, and whereas that usually involves a 15-20 minute wait, this past one was literally zero minutes. Even with masks, I think most people do not like the idea of sharing indoor air space with other people for any longer than is absolutely necessary. That wait was about thirty minutes. Then once I got in the exam room, I thought great, I'm going to be seen soon, but then that wait was another 30 minutes. That's too long. Other than that, the visit was great.

Dr. Garrett was really thorough. She listened to my concerns very well and I felt like the course of action(s) were really good! She was not quick to just prescribe something without addressing the concerns and doing further testing to make sure that the course of action addresses fits the issue!! And that to me is far more better than going to see a doctor that assumes what the issue may be and quick to just prescribe something. Thank you Dr. Garrett!

A little behind schedule on this visit, but generally reasonably on time. I feel like all the procedures are appropriate and necessary. Communicates well.
