The entire BS&W system is fantastic with the portal, but also the staff communicate well and are attentive to the care of the patient. The nurse practitioner was careful of my physical pain and asked before applying the arm cuff to take blood pressure. The Doctor asked good questions and took notes to make sure she had enough information for evaluating my symptoms.
