Appointment wait periods 1-2 weeks. Discussions with the provider of late ended up with a referrals to another physician and frequently ends up with referral back to primary care physician.A lot of appointment wait times with no satisfactory assistance. No post test follow up call or discussions-resultsusually posted on My Chart for self analysis.

Milk toast. Taking care of my health is my responsibility. Seeing Dr. Habib is more of an annoyance than a pep talk. My medical records are all screwed up. I blame that on the need to choose a "code" which usually has nothing to do with the symptoms I describe/exhibit.

Dr. Habit was awesome! She was very professional and felt she is a very sincere provider that truly cares about her patients. I had labs done, and she followed up with my results that were out of the norm and instructed me of my medications and what I needed to do. She was very thorough and clear. I feel she has a way of connecting with her patients, which I felt with her. Also observing her interaction with her staff/tech, she treated them with respect. Thank you Dr. Habit for a wonderful patient care experience!!

dr. had to cancel my appointment because of jury duty. When I explain to the individual who called to cancel the appointment that I was out of the prescription she was not helpful at all. She indicated the only thing I could do was to come in to urgent care. I called back later and another individual was very helpful and gave me the number to call to have my prescription renewed until I could get into the office to see the doctor.

my appointment was to go over lab work. it was frustrating because the office did not have the lab reports in at the time of my appointment, which caused almost a 20+ minute delay and then I felt rushed in my visit with the Doctor. I have been exceedingly happy with Dr. Habib as my primary physician. [...]

It was a very productive visit and I was satisfied with all my interactions with Dr. Habib. I learned test results from blood work and received an orthopedic referral for some recent joint problems. X-rays were done on-site too. Everything went smoothly once the doctor arrived (the wait wait was about 1/2 hr in the exam room).

I appreciate Dr. Habib and the other staff members. the X-ray tech was very personable and helped to make the process simple and quick. God bless.

the Rad tech repeatedly violated HIPPA by yelling loudly and multiple times the full and complete name of each patient. I did not appreciate having my full name announced in the waiting room for all other patients to hear. He needs to be trained on HIPPA.

I just wish they would have given me more information on what I needed before going to the laborstory.

My appt was at 830 got called back about 840 did not see Dr Habbib until 9am. When I asked Dr Habbib how could they be so behind so early in the day and she stated she had to do "something" before coming to work. One I think that shows no respect for my time and two if the staff were aware they should have informed me. This is not the first time something like this has happened at this office. I am a difficult person to draw blood from so they called in [...] and he was GREAT

This visit was to establish my care with a new doctor, Dr. Habib (my previous doctor retired in 12/2016). One of my prescriptions was re-ordered and labwork too. I go for the followup [...]--I expect to receive some immunizations that are due then. I took in my past medical records for my file. Everything was good and helpful -- not too long a visit.
