My appointment was at 4:40 on Friday. It is time for my annual wellness check so I would need some lab work. It was 5 by the end of the appointment and Dr. Poling suggested we go ahead and schedule the lab work. Everyone at that time was ready to leave but they didn't. They stayed around and help me get the appointment for the next week with the lab. I appreciated the extra effort of staying making my appointment for the next week. Saved me time to get it done with. Thanks.

Dr. Poling always spends ample time and thoroughly explains problem, treatment, forward path. He stayed late to look at my X-ray with me (same day it was taken). I appreciate that. The nurses out in the lobby were very good about helping patients maintain adequate distance and seemed very on the ball with regard to where every patient was and if we needed assistance. They also went an extra step and put me in a room alone to wait for my X-ray. I had put off going in for this ankle injury, but I'm very glad I eventually went. Scott and White made me feel safe and comfortable.
