good

Great!


1/24/2019

Office experience was very good considering the insurance issue. Problem was the antibiotic I was prescribed did NOTHING to relieve my symptoms, and when I called the office in the am for something stronger after 10 days... They said they would call me back, but nobody called called me back for TWO AND A HALF DAYS. The doctor I saw was NOT my regular doctor. Unacceptable. The info should have been transferred to my reg doc or nurse practitioner and taken care of right away.

*Dr. Schimke is a good doctor and treats her patients with respect and is very attentive. I have only been seeing her for about a year now. She has taken good care of my medical issues.

awesome

*Dr. Schimke is always great, so is her medical assistant. Once you get past the front desk, everything is fabulous. The receptionist are not always the friendlist and sometimes the conversations that can be overheard are not great.

I have just moved to this area; this was my first visit to this clinic. I felt very good about the clinic and all the staff. Everyone was helpful, and had a very caring attitude.
