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).

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.

07/10/2017
I wrote to the Provider two times using the My Chart app, but did not receive a response either time. This is odd because usually Dr Habib responds almost immediately.
100

06/28/2017
Any information regarding lab results I get online. Only when a result is not optimum does my doctor discuss her concerns and or suggestions for better results the next visit.

normally Dr. Habib takes more than ample time but this visit felt rushed and not thorough - left feeling a bit disappointed and uncertain which is NOT usually the case. we all have our moments and we all have busy not so good days - I would still recommend Dr. Habib though.

06/05/2017
I really like Dr. Habib she never makes me feel like she's to busy or in a hurry she takes her time explains everything so that I understand. I hope she does not leave this office I having her as my Doctor.

For as good as Dr. Habib is, the office staff is just the opposite. I have so much trouble getting responses, and when I get responses, getting the RIGHT response, it's ridiculous. Sometimes they border on the incompetent from my perspective. It is seriously an exercise in frustration dealing with the office.
100

04/26/2017
This was my first appointment with this provider. I believe she listened to my concerns and took steps to resolve. I am very impressed with this group.

For my health, the doctor ordered a TB skin test when I am sure I didn't meet any of the risk factors. This cause me to have an alternative trip to urgent care to have the test read at no additional cost. I did receive a referral for checking on my ringing in my ear, [...] I appreciate the doctor and the nurse practitioner. They are both friendly and professional. The intake assistants are also personable.
