Lab results come quickly via MyChart which is great! There was something not normal about my blood test, and I got a call from the doctor's office right away to schedule a follow-up appointment. The doctor and office staff are very efficient! I've been going there for nearly 30 years, and they've always been great.

Good Experience: I had a concern about a stomach issue and when called for an appointment, earliest possible was about 5 weeks away. Nurse sensed the concern and I was able to get a special appointment within a week on a cancellation.
