I had communicated concerns to the MA and filled out assessments on a clip board. None of them were addressed. I didn't feel brave to bring them up due to a note on the clip board that at my annual checkup I could not ask about new concerns. I wanted some recognition that I had made progress like lower weight, more exercise, lower cholesterol. Got good support for ongoing concerns.

It felt like a rushed time with my provider - while "we got a visit accomplished" and my medical concerns addressed, it felt like she could have dedicated a few minutes to asking about my recent surgery. The visit lasted less than 15 minutes.

I am a nonbinary Queer. The office staff updated my name in their records immediately & the office was very LGBTQAI2S welcoming. Dr Slack apologized when she got my pronouns wrong. That atmosphere/environment makes a huge difference.

Dr. Slack is wonderful and I hope she is recognized by her institution for being the caring, thoughtful provider she is! Legacy needs more PCPs just like her- please work to keep Dr. Slack and the staff protected from the burnout factors that abound right now to maintain such excellent care.

The only concern/comment I have is how I felt like my time is not as important than yours. I scheduled an appointment to be the first appointment of the day that you made available. I wanted to be the first appointment so I would be able to come in and get out quickly In order to make it to my work on time. I live and work in Vancouver. I got up earlier than I do usually to make sure I did not make anyone wait for me. I arrived 10 minutes early to park my car and get to your office and check in. I arrived at the reception desk 5 min before my appointment. I then sat in the waiting room for 15 min past my appointment time before taken back to the exam room. No one mentioned anyone running late or anything. Like communicating to me why I would be sitting and waiting 15 past my appointment time (the first one of the day) didn't matter. I was annoyed because I was made to feel like my time doesn't matter and I am not as Important as you. If I had been 15 min late to show up to my appointment, the Dr and clinic would have been annoyed with me and may or may not have told me to reschedule. I am understanding when things don't go right and schedules get messed up. It happens! But treating me like I should just deal with it isn't fair.

During this visit, she was dismissive and seemed irritated with my description of symptoms. Blood test results came back same day and two were flagged as "high", but no response from her for almost a week and she did not address the two flagged results. I'm looking for another primary care provider.

Dr Slack is excellent at her job, anyone would be extremely luck to have her as their pcp. My husband will be seeing her now as his pcp since his pcp is retiring and he so appreciates Dr Slack's bedside manner and her expert medical knowledge.

Check in person insisted that I fill out additional questionnaire with same questions already answered on-line. Later the assistant verified that these were already answered and was going to talk to receptionist.

I used to think Dr. Slack was thorough. Now she often starts with jokes. Probably thinks she's being friendly. She dismisses concerns about lab results and persistent symptoms, doesn't seem concerned with underlying cause. I'd switch providers, but can't find another taking new patients. VERY FRUSTRATING!

Dr. Slack did everything she could to help me with my injury and to help me understand what is going on with my knee, and what I can do to help it get better. She also showed great compassion, and I appreciate that she will laugh with me, which is how I deal with painful situations often.

It is off putting to have a hand out on the clip board telling people that if they bring up new medical issues at their yearly physical they may be charged with an additional charge for the visit. A yearly physical is the exact time you should talk to providers about health concerns that are new. It is fine if the doctor wants to recommend that pts come back, but the note was very off putting and offensive to me.I really like and appreciate Dr Slack, but she was running 45 minutes late for my apt which was scheduled for 9:30am and no one apologized or gave reason for the delay.

Dr. Slack heard all of my concerns about my knees and provided me with the confirmation and referrals I need to correct the problem. She always listens to me and respects my opinion even when my first choice is to seek alternative/complementary approaches to an issue. Traditional medical solutions are usually my last resort.
