The nurse who took my urine sample from me claimed I got urine in her eye when I was putting the sample in the bag she held out. I felt humiliated. I had been very careful to keep the sample container clean and dry. Perhaps there was water on my hands that I had just washed, but it stills seems highly unlikely that anything from me splashed into her eye.

Dr. Dempster is very capable and caring. She assessed me quickly but accurately and even took her time to make an appointment for me with another provider that very day for more assessment and flu.

I was told several times that my appointment was at 830 and I should come 10 minutes early. So I was still sitting in the waiting room at 845a and asked to reschedule and the lady said to me that no, 830 is check in time, 840 is the doctor time, as if I was an idiot. I felt stupid and really was upset at how fast she blew me off.

I had a productive visit. I will be honest and say I generally hesitate on calling in when I need to set appointments due to the conveyed demeanor of some team members. I'd suggest listening in on some of the inbound calls if you do not already. Overall, I had a good visit.

I had to bring my young grandson, age [age deleted], to the office visit because I provide care for him. I have done this before. Dr. Dempster always includes him in the conversation and makes him feel comfortable, as do the assistants, even offering to weigh him if he wants and explaining the equipment. Such attention makes it easier for me to get the care I need. Great doctor, great staff, great office.

This was a first time visit. It was all very positive and I am optimistic. While I do not want to answer a survey after every visit, time and the future will give me a better overall opinions.

Although not essential, there was no greeting by reception...I had to say Hi before explaining what I was there. I felt that my doctor was more attentive and made referrals for specialty testing. I don't think I left understanding how to manage the sporadic pain and dizziness I experience. With that said, I think the plan is to get further testing and circle back with my PCP in two weeks...Which should allow for a management plan I assume.Yet and still...I'm actually in pain right now and don't know how to manage it in the mean time.

Dr. Dempster was so friendly and warm, I liked her right away. She listened to my health concerns and ordered Xrays and blood tests, which I was able to get the same day. The next day, she called with my results, and then called again a few days later to refer me to a specialist. She also had a nutritionist call me. I appreciate her follow ups!

although I am on Medicare and have other medical insurance, I was charged a $30 copay, contrary to what I believed was, is, appropriate.

There was a hold up causing a long wait. It would be beneficial for reception to notify waiting patients that there will be an extended wait; in case people have additional appointments or time sensitive errands following the office visit or need to get back to their offices.

Dr Dempster is as caring as she is thorough in her approach to overseeing my health care. I appreciate her friendly and approachable demeanor. She does not over treat, either and helps me understand whether or not a concern of mine needs to be pursued without making me feel silly for asking the questions.

Everything was fine with Dr. Dempster. When i went in the nurses station, it was confussing. I needed to go to lobby to check out weather or not Medicare would allow a vitamen D test. I had to stand in waiting rm talking on phone where everyone could hear me (has to say ssN number out loud. Medicare could give me an answer. So i didnt have the test. No code numbers.

I thoroughly enjoyed the visit and made a follow up appointment for next year - taking into consideration that nothing unforseen changes in my health profile. I could not have chosen a better fit for a PCP if I tried.

The office staff seemed tired, they were polite to me but were just slightly impatient with some slower, elderly patients behind me. Did not create the most inviting atmosphere but perhaps this was just a bad day.
