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.

This was my first visit to this facility and the team of receptionists, nurses and primary care doctor. I have had the unfortunate experience of receiving very poor care from Greenfield Health over the past 16 months so I know what it's like when doctors don't believe me or do not listen to what I am saying, do not discuss recent events, feelings and disregard XRays showing my fractured cervical spine. It was so bad that I gave up healing and gave in to failing health. I have been on the receiving end of poor health care by providers who treated me like a statistic or an anomaly and it cost me dearly. I finally got out of that situation and landed an affordable health plan that I could afford. My very first impression once on the plan was when an on-boarding team proactively contacted me to align me with a new Primary Care Physician in the network. I was flabbergasted and in disbelief that a medical facility wanted to help me get on track with the daunting task of "where do I start?" In the brief moments where I spoke with the onboarding specialist, I knew I finally found real people who really cared. She listened as I highlighted my past experience and my current health situation and she did so with mindfulness and care. She immediately signed me up with Dr Borden. I had to wait about a month to get the appointment but I was not disappointed when I got to meet him and the nice people at the facility. For the first time in years, I felt like someone cared for me and wanted to see me get better. I teared up a little when I got in my car to leave because of the negativity and resentment from the past experiences. I was so grateful that I found such a good doctor and a good healthcare plan. I am grateful.

Blood test were ordered. I called the Legacy lab and got an appointment that was 45 minutes out. That was good, except the time that I finally got in was about 50 minutes later than the appointment. I can accept 15 to 30 minutes late, but 50 is a bit much.

I had to remind provider to order lab tests re: a new medication I was taking. He had said on a previous visit he would do this, but this time he was going to discharge me without doing it. He had also said previously he would do more extensive physical examination, but none was done except re: a pain complaint I had.He answers emails promptly, and does take time to get a history.

I have been seeing Dr. Borden for a few years now - during this last visit I was called back promptly. The person taking my vitals was kind, professional, and quick. This visit was a routine check-up regarding medication and Dr. Borden documented my progress and answered my questions appropriately. At my request, he took the time to talk with me about family planning at this stage in my life. He validated concerns I had and encouraged me to reach out in 3 months if conceiving becomes difficult to discuss options.
