You asked about receptionists, however some visits the MA's were less than enjoyable. Other times were great.

The doctor and receptionists were great. The only hiccup is that somewhere a communication was missed. I did not know that I was to arrive much earlier to get x-rays. When I made appointment, the young lady told me my appointment was 1:30, but when I arrived, it turns out that they wanted me to arrive well-before 1:30 in order to get x-rays in time for 1:30 appointment. Otherwise, everyone was great and did a great job.

The care I received was excellent. My difficulty with this appt. Is the facility itself is not appropriate for aging adults with health conditions and using a wheelchair. Having to go out to the street from the parking lot to access a steep ramp in order to enter the building is absolutely inappropriate. Once inside the building some doors (lobby to exam area were missing electronic, or malfunctioning, door openers. I was hit twice with a malfunctioning door.

I am still very upset at the fact that my MRI from Woodburn Legacy was out sourced to a non Providence network company to read my MRI causing me to have to pay $194 because of something Legacy did. Very irritating and I feel as though Legacy should reimburse me that $194 because of their mistake!!!!!!!!

Everyone in this office were very friendly. I was on crutches and they went out of their way to help me with doors. I was 45 minutes early for my appt and they were super nice and got me in within I think 10 minutes. The nurse in the back was very friendly and talked to me about what was going to happen next and where the doc was. It was overall a great experience. I would highly recommend this office.
