Everything is very slow. Appointments are not open, once at the hospital I have to wait for over an hour past my scheduled time for the doctor to come in, [...] and after I get sent to do [...] tests and I call to follow up about the results, no one calls back or follows up.

Test results were not discussed by Doctor unless asked & not in detail. Long waiting time to see doctor & took longer than usual for whole process to get over. Doctor forgot to do some important steps of physical exam & had to be reminded to do.

Dr. Denise Maner is an exceptional Dr. She has all of the knowledge needed, but not everyone has the ability to make a patient feel safe about opening up about sensitive health issues. She makes a patient feel protected. She is a good listener and adviser. She is not judgmental and is always encouraging. She truly wants us all to thrive. We are not just a number to her. She goes above and beyond to make sure our care is excellent. She makes every minute with her feel like she was born to be a Dr., not like others who make you feel like they can't wait to finish the day and get out of there. I can't imagine having comfort with any other DR the way I have with her.

Dr. Maner has been my doctor for years. I think she is one of the best doctor's I've ever had. She is responsive to all of my needs in a timely manner. She knows my history and test results and any other pertinent information when I call or have an appointment. The best care I could hope for.

I strongly think I will be changing Doctors. I am not happy how my visit was handled this last times with this Doctor. My appointment was at 8am and I didn't get home until 11:30am the time it took for this visit was absolutely ridiculous.

I made my appointment for 8 a.m. on a Monday. There was some confusion with my insurance card (the provider did not collect accurate information before my visit). I didn't actually end up seeing the doctor until about 9 a.m.I initially visited the doctor to get a referral. It's been two weeks and I have not received confirmation that my referral has been accepted. Also, I asked to be referred to a specific office, and t looks like that information may have been entered incorrectly.Denise Maner was very kind though. Nothing was wrong with her services. The processes within the office needs to improve.
