I scheduled my appointment online, dd the online checking and arrived 20 minutes early. I filled out the forms in < 5 minutes and eventually was called back. My weight, BP and temp were measured. by this time it was 2:35. I waited until 2:45 and still wasn\'t seen my the physician. I summoned the nurse and explained that I had a meeting at 3:00 that I could not miss. The nurse said that Dr. Pena was in an adjacent room, but if I wanted, I could go to the front to reschedule. I waited another five minutes and then had to leave at 2:50. All I needed was to see Dr. Pena for a refill on my BP meds, Losartan and Amlodipine, since he continues to deny my refills. My BP is fine and all I needed was the refill authorization. I will not be seeing Dr. Pena again, since I cannot rely on being seen within a reasonable time....even when I was early for my appointment. Not acceptable....

I needed a new doctor since I moved. When I first saw Dr. Pena, a nurse asked me to fill out a mood survey. I had never seen any practice require it. I am happy that the test was given first because I was trying to figure how to ask for anti-depressants.
