The nurse who brought us back was not very friendly. I was the one trying to be personable to her. the medical scribe who entered with doctor Kwasman was very unsociable. when I tried to inquire about her name an experience, she was barley sociable. didn't make any effort to treat me like a person but rather information to be typed. [...], who called me the next day about a problem attaining the proper referral, was beyond rude. she spoke to me like I was an ignorant child and had no compassion or patience to explain courteously my situation. She was like that this time and has been that way during any phone I nteractions I have had with her during my time as a patient here. Dr. Kwasman was helpful and listened to our concerns and also spent a good amount of time explaining things to us. I really appreciated that. Due to an insurance problem, however, when I scheduled the appointment 3 months ago, I was not aware I would need a new referral to see Dr Kwasman (even though I've been his patient for over 3 years). [...] overall, I'm happy with Dr Kwasman, not with his staff.
