The front office staff at Grant Creek are not always friendly or helpful friendly appear to have conflicting or missing information.
[...] everything excellent.
Dr. Fertig (and his staff!) are just the best. I always feel that every question I have is answered thoroughly and I feel so well cared for. The staff at the desk is friendly and efficient and the medical assistants are all very good at what they do.
Follow up visit for post hospital and treatment. Professional care provided and follow up plan was clear, understandable and precise.
He was very helpful at the last visit. He seemed to care about me.
I am so grateful for Dr. Fertig. He changed my seizure meds so that I 1) remain seizure-free and 2) no longer sleep 14 hours a day. My seizure medications were ruining my life and he fixed it. Dr. Fertig is a kind and cheerful fellow and he takes time to fully answer all of my questions. I couldn't imagine a better neurologist for myself.
Good people. I remember long waits as a norm growing up in the 70s & 80s. Now it's almost too short a wait to read the specialty magazines and recycle the paper by leaving it for others. Great resource not on discharge instructions.
