Positive Experiences Feeling Heard and Cared For
It’s important that you feel heard and cared for at your primary care appointments. And if it’s been a while since you had a routine appointment, you might have more questions and concerns.

“Good protection from [coronavirus] contamination, good communication, very good staff listening and care.” –Jim
“They are on top of it. I’m impressed. I got an appointment online for that afternoon, and waited in my car until they called me.

Thank you all for taking such good care.” –Dana
