We made very little progress. Nothing that will help me get any relief from my symptoms. My tinnitus was not dealt with and my freezing feet no hope for residual chemo that was left in my body.

Use of location-enabled smartphone software to check in as I approached the clinic was quite impressive and efficient.

The worst problem was that I was ON HOLD on the telephone for 49 minutes when I tried to call about my appointment! That is nearly AN HOUR ON HOLD! And then, after close to an hour ON HOLD, listening to the recording, when the receptionist tried to answer my call, apparently she accidentally disconnected me, because my call ended, after nearly an hour on hold, with never speaking to a person!! I was EXTREMELY FRUSTRATED! It wasted most of my morning! So, apparently you need to hire additional receptionists! This is a very busy general practice medical clinic. The receptionists are always friendly and helpful in person. I don't think I can remember any other situations in my entire long life where I have been on hold for an hour, and then did not even speak with a human being. That is really disrespectful to me as a patient! And then to be (apparently accidentally) cut off, that entire experience is NOT ACCEPTABLE! Thank you for fixing this situation for the future for all the patients who try to telephone this office!

Dr Borden is an affable and excellent primary care doc. He listens and provides straightforward advice. Most doctors are social misfits, bookish nerds unable to effectively communicate with other human beings. Not James Borden, he is great, both learned and resourceful. Highly recommended.

I feel waiting 45 minutes on the phone for someone to answer and giving up and hanging up is not how a front office should run. They need more staff to answer phones.

Dr Borden seemed to not understand the pain level I was in. Didn't go into any possible solution to the pain other than pain meds and muscle relaxers. I was looking for a root solution to the pain not just something that would mask it for a few hours. I felt there was enough pain and information given Dr Borden to admit me to the hospital. He disagreed. I'm sitting at home now taking medication with no solution in site.

Been Dr. Borden's pt. for 20+ yrs. Always pays attention, approachable, knowledgeable. Also, the reception staff are very nice each visit. Some/many receptionists in OTHER Legacy offices are unfriendly and have an "attitude." Why are so many offices like that: Unfriendly, don't listen, act rushed when people come in sick, soared, confused. I sit in waiting rooms observing the UNKIND behavior of staff. Dr. Borden's staff are all very nice!

Having difficulty getting my meloxicam prescription because instead of tablets being ordered for appox $4 charge an oral powder was ordered which is not covered by insurance and will cost patient $200 dollars. Six days have elapsed since my visit - pharmacist indicated having difficulty getting provider to respond.

Dr. Borden has been my doctor for at least 25 years. I maybe one of the first patients he had at his first office on NW Lovejay St. (I believe he was 29-years old at the time.) He has been very kind to me over the years. Each visit is a bit different as is life itself! I appreciate him and hope he sees me out of this world.
