Issue with the computer system delayed the nurse coming to my car after initial telephone checking. After the appointment I was phoned requesting a return to the office for additional paperwork.

Very welcoming!
Oct 12, 2021
My appointment was at 4:30. I arrived at 4:20. I was called into the office at 4:30, gave a urine sample for suspected UTI, saw Dr. Lance (not a UTI so referred to a urologist due to kidney stone history ) and was back in my car by 4:50. This was the quickest appointment I have ever had!
Oct 10, 2021

Dr. Gowan was concerned about the scrape on my leg. Pad was stuck so left it on and put on another wrap. Told to come back in a week.

Only minor issue was the person drawing blood (I have "good" veins) left a pretty good bruise. Usually this doesn't hurt much but her technique wasn't very good compared to others.Wasn't very friendly either but not concerned about that.

I offered the practice my past medical information on disc and on a flash drive, but they were not able to use either one, nor did they have another solution to offer. That was disappointing.

Aug 26, 2021
Routine Annual exam, no problems were discussed
Aug 26, 2021
I was early and was still attended to quickly.
Aug 24, 2021
I arrived for an 8am appt at 7:50am. I called twice before 8am and got the IVR before getting someone at 8am. I was checked in and told I would be called when ready. I was parked right in front of the door. If you are going to call someone and tell them it is time wouldn't you confirm you had the correct phone number?
Aug 24, 2021
So when asked what they would like me to do I said I would like my appointment that I scheduled two months in advance. I was told that was not possible. I was quite upset at this point as my time is just as valuable as the people in the office. I ended up leaving after being told I would not be seen and I would be rescheduled.
Aug 24, 2021
I have been a patient of this office for well over 20 years and this was my first real negative experience. I like the Dr. However I now have to wait another month and a half for my next appt and make multiple trips for bloodwork and appt. All could have been different with a simple is this your phone number question.
Aug 24, 2021
After waiting 45 minutes I called to find out what was going on. I was told the phone I was talking on was turned off and that my VM was not set up on a phone I have had for 8 years. I was told I would have to reschedule. Then someone came out to the car to talk to me and told me it was my fault because they apparently called my house phone number.
Aug 22, 2021
Appointment scheduling has always an easy task, and the reception associates (esp. Teresa) have always Been very courteous & accommodating.
Aug 22, 2021
Dr. Gowen is a very quiet doctor (a man of few words). Having said that, his diagnosis appears to be "spot-on." When I see Dr. Gowen again, I shall be prepared to ask more questions and be more engaging.
Aug 20, 2021
Since lobby is closed, achair or two outside would help
