Anything less than a '10' score, in this survey, related solely to the time management of my appointment, not the quality of the medical or professional services provided by the doctor or staff. When the nurse or doctor was with me, I had their full attention and they provided explanations to any questions I had. My appointment arrival time was at 9:45am and it was 11:45am when I left the doctor's office. Then I proceeded downstairs to do my labs, because I had been fasting in prep for my labs, all this time. So I actually left the clinic building, after my labs, at 12:15pm, 2 l/2 hrs. later, from the beginning of my appointment. This is a brief time management breakdown of my elongated appointment. The nurse promptly took me to the exam room at 9:45am . . . did the vitals . . . did the required medicare/wellness check questions generated by the computer. We could hear voices, in the adjacent room, not the words that were being spoken, and when the nurse was done, she said referring to the voices we could hear, when the doctor is finished with that patient, you are next and she will be in with you. The nurse left and there was a significant enough time that passed, that I didn't hear voices and the doctor had not come in. A little more time passed and a younger gentleman came in, introduced himself, and said he would like to ask some questions and do some basic testing. No one had mentioned this to me so I was a bit surprised. The gentleman was friendly, kind, showed concern/interest and was professional but this turned into what I thought was a slow, methodical, lengthy session. I would break down this time with him into 3 segments: First, he asked me it I had any concerns or things I wanted to talk to the doctor about . . . I prepare a sheet of items I want to discuss with doctor. . . so I went through my list and he very diligently took notes. Second, he then did computer generated questions. Third, he did some basic testing on my balance, breathing, ability for my eyes to track movement, etc., possibly related to medicare aged patients (71 yrs.). As he exited, he said the doctor will be coming. Another rather extended period of time went by before the doctor and the young gentleman came into the exam room together. The doctor started to address the concerns I had mentioned to the young gentleman . . . so it was very evident that he certainly was performing his position well. But that also indicated to me that may be the extended wait from when the young gentleman left and when he returned with the doctor was possibly time spent that they were collaborating about my concerns. So as I said at the beginning, the doctor and all of the staff, including the young gentleman, were excellent, professional and willing to address my concerns. As a patient for me it was the time management aspect that did not seem balanced. As a clinic, when training residents/fellows how to interject them into the patient's care process is probably not an easy balance to maintain, and possibly this approach that I experienced is more corporate driven and almost out of the hands of the individual doctor. I felt this would be the best venue to share my personal experience but in no way do I want my comments to diminish the competency or professional medical care given to me by Dr. Forrester and her staff. Thank you for listening.
