Dr. H. is always good. I mentioned a study I had seen a summary of recently, and he knew the details of it very specifically, so he keeps up on medicine. He's kind and listens well.

Dr Hochenedel is the best. Always listens and involves us in treatment options. Orders tests appropriately and will order tests from our concerns. He is always communicative on the the portal and responds to any question. He used to be my dr also but I have providence insurance or I would still be a patient also. I believe my mother had lived this long because I'd his great care.

I think Legacy policy to make a young patient a new patient if unseen in 3 years is ridiculous. Also think it is ridiculous that the office staff will not ask doctor to re-see patient. Was very difficult for me to be re-established w/my doctor. This is not a good policy in my opinion.

Requiring masks in the check up context is absolutely ridiculous at this present time. I have two sons that are licensed medical doctor surgeons and other family members such as nurses are in the medical profession so I am not ignorant of the facts and realities.

If I would have been informed to fast, I could have had my blood tested after meeting with the doctor. I had to make a separate appointment for blood testing. At my last checkup a year ago, my blood was tested without fasting.

Dr Hochenedel reads through everything and is well prepared. I have never gone to an appointment with him and felt like an afterthought. It also seems like he is more willing to change his mind than some doctors. I also like his assistant. She is very organized and gets everything squared away like prescriptions in a timely fashion.

I was very pleased with the care I received. Dr. Hochenedel read the comments I left when I made my specific-issue appointment and understood why I was there.The reception desk seemed to think I was there for a regular office visit, though, which made things confusing when I arrived because it affected my visit payment. I felt like the reception desk did not have access to my reason for visit, and it was not something I wanted to discuss publicly in the lobby.

Dr H is great at asking questions of me to get to the root of my problem. I know I don't feel well but l find it difficult to be specific about it. He is easy to talk with and draws the information he needs out of me. He helped me immensely during my last visit and recommended a short term solution to my itching problem. He ordered tests to work on long term solution too.

Looks like office is a bit understaffed. The doctor had a good attitude about this even though it clearly left him handling other people's jobs.

Person to person communication.... It varies from being pleasant, the doctor and his nurse, to acting like they are impatient, having too much to deal with. On those visits, I have to wonder whether they do not enjoy senior patients. Most of the visits are pretty positive.

The receptionist was incredibly friendly and helpful. I had never seen this particular doctor before, but I had an urgent issue that I wanted to get checked out and my usual doctor not available. Doctor Hochenedel paid close attention and asked follow up questions when I explained what was going on, he was professional and careful to explain what he was doing each step of the exam. I generally don't like doctor's visits but this one was very well done.
