I have a difficult time getting responses back from Dr. Wardwell. Just because she's a part time doctor should not mean that I receive part time care. [...]

The only bad experience would be. That I cannot get a appointment on Monday's or Friday's. Dr. Wardwell does not work on these days. It makes contacting with her very hard to get! I have to wait until Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. I wish she would work all five days. Yes! Monday thru Friday, 8:00 AM to ? Please!

I mentioned something I was concerned about and Dr. Wardwell didn't check it out, instead she said, "well maybe it's...try not doing this and see if it gets better." I was there already, so why not check it out then?

The office to change appointment dated. The female said the doctor had a emergency. Now this is two weeks from the appointment dated. I found out there was no emergency. The female lied to me. I do not like being lied to! DR. WARDWELL IS THE BEST!!!

Had to send email to get test results that I was told would be in My Chart and were not. Email response from provider said x-ray was normal but didn't offer any suggestions as to handle the condition I was seen for.

This was my first visit with Dr. Wardwell, which is why she did not have my medical records, [...]. But I did have a strong sense that she is interested, very knowledgeable and caring, so I am confident that we will have a good working relationship.
