Now with scribe use in office. Visits are briefer, less personal, and more time conversing with scribe than pt.

It is difficult to get an appointment. I cannot get an appointment with my long time physician, Dr [...].Dr Christenson is great, but I would like to see my original cardiologist.

She has saved my health from serious health problems twice. She is one of the best doctors that I have had experience with.

Dr. Christiansen is a wonderful person and I believe she truly cares about me as a patient. This is not always the case with most Drs. She seems to allocate sufficient time with each person rather than hurriedly half listening. I know, I and (as most patients probably) tend to ramble and get non specific...time wasters. But she actually seems to listen to my concerns. She ordered blood tests done and they were. The trouble lies in the areas that the blood test explored did not fully cover the areas I personally think are extremely important to my individual needs [...] It is nearly impossible to procure blood tests w/out a Dr. request. I would like the most complete and informational results so that I may take the reins of my healthcare so to speak. In plain speak I was not happy with the blood tests done and want the most comprehensive tests taken allowable. These tests that were performed fell far short of my desires.

Only problem is that Dr Christensen is so busy that it is hard to get an appt with her when I want my dad to see her, but I don't want to change to a different cardiologist, as the three of us work very well together, with much mutual respect and appreciation

dr and nurse excellent job of listening to health issues and creating a path of care that fit my health issues. Excellent communication skills. It was obvious that your health concerns mattered to them and they were "in it" with you. Finding health solutions was important to them.

She saved my life twice. Once in November 2016 finding large blood clots in my right lung. Again in January 2017 discovering a bacteria infection in my blood. Both were serious medical issues. She is a super star doctor.

I was able to be seen quickly in an emergency situation. The office staff, nurses and assistants communicate well with each other and with me. Testing was scheduled right away with communication about results immediate via the patient portal.

The only problem I had was with a rescheduling issue. I had to postpone the first appointment due to a conflict that I had forgotten and was told I had to go back to the doctor at CCNW who had initially referred me. They also scheduled me for an ecco and then canceled it. When the second apt was scheduled they did the same thing even after I told them that I was suppose to see the doctor first. They insisted on scheduling an ecco which they subsequently cancelled. My daily schedule is rather hectic and it was frustrating to try to explain this to them and have them not listen to me, have me rearrange my schedule and then cancel.

A little frustrated that I have not received my test results back after waiting two weeks In fact I have called three times now trying to find out to only be peomised that someone will call me back and they have not. I have even expressed concern that what I was being tested for seems to be getting worse and I still haven't received a response.
