I hadn't seen my provider in over a year but her staff kept in communication with me about labs due and other things, but I didn't have insurance so I waited. My provider was over 20 minutes late for appointment but I understood because the clinic was very busy and always is, so I felt my time with my provider didn't get enough time or attention but I know I can always write her about my concerns later in My Chart.

I have been in a lot of pain and wanted the results of my x rays asap. The provider said she would get back to me. The nest day was her day off so she said she would call me on Wednesday. I did not hear from her, after several calls on my own I did get the results which were hard to under stand. And I talked to a couple of others who I ed on my own. The doctor was good and helpful but did not follow thru in the end.
