Dr. Sammond was a breath of fresh air as compared to my previous physical exam. She was so patient, understanding, caring, interested, and informative....And she took whatever time I needed to do what I feel was a thorough physical exam. I felt an immediate connection with her, and am very happy to now have her as my new personal physician.

The lab visit was very frustrating. There was a new digital check in station that didn't function. There were about 7 people waiting to sign in. I entered my information 5 times, it kept saying I didn't exist. I finally left in frustration. The staff said that the station often didn't work.

I feel like she is invested in my health care and my trust in her is unquestionable.

One of Dr. Sammond's best attributes is that she doesn't talk down to me. It is not unusual for doctors to treat patients as if they're mentally deficient simply because they don't also have a medical degree. Dr. Sammond doesn't do that. I assume she is good at assessing each patient's level of understanding.

I'm a new patient so this was my introductory visit. I talked through my medical needs with Dr Sammond and she immediately initiated the course of action, starting with ordering x-rays which I was able to go straight to. The x-rays were taken extremely quickly and efficiently and Dr Sammond gave me the results via MyHealth first thing the following morning as well as put in a referral for the next step: Physical Therapy. I am extremely impressed with the entire system so far!

Lab assistant couldn't find my vein in one arm with needle, and had to go to other arm. Dr said one of my prescriptions wasn't approved for muscular pain, but I knew it was from refilling the medicine and reading the pharmacy info sheet. I just think she should have known rather than going into her explanation of why it wouldn't help.

This clinic and its staff are excellent. I received a call back from the Advice Nurse within a half hour and was able to make an appointment for the same afternoon.

I was not able to give a specimen when I first arrived to appointment but was able to before appointment over. I was asked to wait until after M.A. reviewed the after visit summary with me. I was then told that I wouldn't be able to use the unoccupied bathroom that was four feet from my exam room but I would take my specimen container through the lobby to restroom by main entrance and then to deliver specimen to lab. when giving specimen to lab I was then questioned as to why I was bringing a specimen to them that had a "clinic label". They finally accepted specimen but I then had to reshow my insurance card and resign papers. This was less than a favorable experience and totally unnecessary. Even though a timely appointment, this definitely felt like I had surpassed my allotted timeframe and was sent to another area unnecessarily!

My experience with this office and provider has always been excellent. Dr. Sammond listens and never seems rushed and is always willing to answer or discuss any issues I might have. The only complaint I might have is that it is tedious to fill out an online form, before my appointment, regarding my health with repetitive questions that seem meaningless - for instance: do I smoke or have I ever smoked. I continually answer no, I have never smoked; and other questions that I answer the same each year that do not seem necessary. Then when I arrive for my appointment I am again given another long questionnaire that asks the very same questions. I have sometimes just skimmed over the questions as they are so repetitive nor do they pertain to me. At my age, I would prefer a questionnaire that is aimed at me personally, or at least at someone around my age - such as, have I experienced any heart issues, digestive issues, arthritis issues, back issues, or any other age related issues that might be concerning, in the past few months or since last visit. And then perhaps the Dr. might talk to me about what issues I might want to be aware of or that I might experience at this age - whether or not I am experiencing them at this time. I realize it would be hard to personalize a questionnaire but perhaps a less lengthy one with less repetition; or one pertaining to certain age groups. Perhaps this kind of thing might not be legally allowed. Anyway, thank you for your concern for your patients.
