All employees are very polite and helpful. Had problems with the lady at the main entrance making sure you cleaned your hands and pointed out that you must take a new mask. She had not patience with the people. Also I have been coming here for many years and this is the first time I was taken to the exam room on time. Dr. Palmer must learn to organize his time. My husband and I have had the experience of waiting too long to have our eyes checked.

The actual medical care is excellent but the wait times are always excessive at this medical practice. Due to the current concerns with Covid, it's very stressful to have to be in a doctor's office for over 2 hours. If the doctor is running late, why can't patients be allowed to wait in their cars and receive a text message when it's time to come in? Also, I don't understand the point of doing an E-check-in in advance when I still had to check-in onsite and answer so many questions. I'm disappointed that more isn't being done to keep patients safe by minimizing our time in the office and our interactions with staff.
