New symptoms with pain so I called to see if someone could help me, same day. My regular PA Calamanis does not work on Monday, so I asked for any available doctor. Dr Gowan has extensive practice with elderly, so I asked for him when I was told he had appointment in afternoon. I arrived about 30 min eally, and was taken in for vitals within minutes -- an earlier scheduled patient had not shown up and since I was in pain vitals were taken and Dr arrived in a few minutes . Thanks for fast service

Appreciate the timeliness required but had to reschedule the first time because of a car problem was 15 minutes late but notified them half hour in advance. When I arrived, they made me reschedule rather than seeing me. Would hope they would have some flexibility to accommodate when that happens.
