Very committed to ensure I was comfortable with the provider approach, explanation of problem and patient as I asked questions. The provider did not rush the process as so many other providers do. I appreciated the approach. Would be good for other providers to learn from. In many respects other providers appear to rush to through the appointment. I have been a patient at the Clinic for 40 years and have great confidence in the clinic. However, over the years the process has been rushed reducing the personal care that patients want. This is an opportunity for the Clinic to work on and to further differentiate itself from other Care facilities. I am sure this is being addressed as evidenced by this survey.

Dr. King is very slow at responding to My Chart messages.

Reviewed on Apr 22, 2019

Dr. King provided very little information about the procedure and recovery time and precautions to take (i.e., like I would feel significantly worse before feeling better). He had told me on my chart that I would have to be on crutches for 2 weeks so I had to cancel a previous appointment due to a family vacation conflict. The day of the actual procedure he was very flippant about how long I need to be on crutches - he said maybe a week. There doesn't seem to be much of a protocol for this procedure and it didn't make me feel very confident that the procedure would even work. Also in the my chart post-procedure summary it said that I was provided with an information packet about the procedure (I was not) and that I shouldn't take NSAIDS for 2 weeks (Dr. King told me 5 days). I am very unsatisfied with the overall experience.
