Hands on evaluation of head, neck & throat for abnormalities-she barely touched me. Her touch was so light & quick it didn\'t seem thorough. I find this ocurs frequently with providers today. I did d not hav any complaints in thise areas but how can an unrknown abnormality be picked up if the provider doesn\'t take 30 more seconds to do a thorough exam? When providers examine in this matter pa patient gets the feeling they are being rushed on through an exam for the purpose of money & moving on to the next patient. I work in the healthcare industry and understand the realities of today\'s medicine, but touch patients & be more thorough please. Thank you.

The Provider was Lovely, Polite, Engaging. The Prescription Refill line.Option #2 is were there is a Lag. Calls made by me, on Thursday about a ajustsment to a phone in order, were not solved until Tuesday. Took 5 calls and Several Days to Fill the order. Once a Again, Mrs Barnes will more than like become my Proider. I was very comfortable with her. The response time and what felt like confusion and impatientions from the staff on the Phone, about the Medication. ( "Not". The Clinc Staff, that took care of me on Wednesday)

I was nervous to see with her because she wasn\'t my primary and I had some female reproductive issues so very sensitive topic area to me. but she discovered what the issue was and was soooo understanding and patient and compassionate about what I was going through I felt so embarrassed. so embarrassed.so embarassed. but she educated me, explained to me it happens I\'m not a horrible person. If I can\'t get scheduled with my primary I will DEFINITELY schedule with her. thank you Ms.Barnes
