It has been difficult to schedule our annual appointments on the same day. I have been told to call during a certain week only to find out that the doctor's schedule is already booked for two to three months ahead of when the yearly appt. Is needed. That has pushed our apptointment to 3-4 months after it should have taken place. For instance, we should have a February appointment but weren't able to get in until May 15.

Initially I was unsure if the appointment was going to be set up. Because it was done over MyChart instead of them calling me, it was a bit more challenging to find a mutual time. It turns out, they Schmitt at a time that the doctor was not available (and never is at that time) so I waited planned my day around waiting online for 45 minutes without anyone coming online. The doctor finally called me when he was available (45 minutes after it was supposed to begin, 15 minutes for chart review with a nurse that never happened then the 30 minutes that was supposed to be the doctor's appointment).

Reviewed on Feb 27, 2024

I was also scheduled for a chart review 15 minutes before the doctor visit. A nurse never came on. I arranged a very early morning at work unnecessarily because the video chat happened later because of a scheduling error. Also, if there is not going to be a chart review, that's fine but don't put it on the schedule then my time is as valuable as yours.
