Didn't get to talk to her about what I wanted to, as she was concerned about my dizziness and sent me to hospital

Tara is an awesome provider who looks into my health issues and abnormal test results deeply. By doing so, she was responsible for my liver disease getting diagnosed even though my liver enzymes went back into the normal range.

I had an appointment for 720 and was sent an text to arrive @ 710. I did & the door was locked. I waited until 715 and a receptionist finally came to let me in. She did not look at or greet me but turned & walked away. Another person behind the desk sat looking at her computer & finally waited on me. No smile NOT FRIENDLY! I was first patient of the day & seen at 745. Tara and med techs are great. Front desk staff are aloof, uninterested and unfriendly.

The Provider was very good but my Primary Provider was off for the day and she is the one I would prefer to see. No issue either way both are very kind and thoughtful and good at that profession.

The only negative was the phone system to even try to make an appointment.I think staff should call their number and try to get in to do something simple, like make an appointment. This system was ridiculous.

This was a new patient visit. My care was great. What was not great was the many months that it took to get the appointment. The clinic wouldn't see me for care until I had a new patient appt and said to go to urgent care. My health care issue wasn't urgent. I wanted consistency in my care but couldn't be seen by the provider that I asked for. I just switched from Kaiser.

I really liked Tara. My appointment was very early in the morning and she was ready for her day with a smile and a kind personality. She listened intently, was helpful with information and he's of all, personablelike we were having a cup of coffee together. That said, her professionalism and knowledge was superb! I'm so thankful to have connected with her.
