I have no complaints. Since my appointment was made through the COVID crises, the office took all the precautions necessary.

I would have rated my visit a 10 and not a 9 except for two things: 1) I had a serious rash. When I called to see if I could see the DR earlier than my appointed time, I was told the next opening was in September--over a month away. This is an issue, chronic or even emergency situations should have some priority, a built in safety feature to the scheduling process is needed. 2) not the Drs fault, but one of the prescriptions was so prohibitively costly (pharma fault!) that the pharmacist was trying to find a work-around. I will say that the one prescription I did have, Clobetasol, seems to be working immediately and I am very satisfied. Still waiting on the biopsy and hope I am alerted when results are available. Thank You!

I do not remember if my temp was taken but I do remember being told that my temp would be taken. The office staff was very friendly, I felt comfortable with the rooming nurse and I have always enjoyed Dr. Cook. I felt lie she addressed all of my concerns professionally and put my mind at ease. Thank you much. I have already been referring everyone I know to her and will continue to do so!

Anything by computer is difficult for those of us with minimal computer skills. Otherwise, all is well.
