great, somewhat rushed


Jan 8, 2019

Swift, fast, thorough, compassionate. I've felt very well taken care of, this team is so very professional, very detailed and it is clear that they spend time prior to my my appointments going through my records, test results etc. and they are very prepared with and ready to offer up potential solutions . They accepted me as new patient and based on my needs, managed to offer me an appointment in an expedited manner, when I've arrived to my appointments I never felt rushed, I did not feel like I was "squeezed in" and in fact I felt as though they spent more time with me than usual. They asked so many questions and paid so much attention to my responses and even more time listening and responding to my questions. The over all office culture was felt very stable, from the second I walked in and met the receptionist to the very end at the check out desk. I was given clear direction with detailed printed post visit instructions. I know this office is very busy; however, I was made to feel as though I was the only patient in the office on both occasions. Honestly, this has been one of the best experiences I have had with a medical group. I will be having surgery, this will be the first time that I will have to undergo surgery and so I was extremely nervous but my experiences with this group have been so pleasant, informative, thorough and positive that my high confidence with Dr.Shafton, Dr. ******** and the entire group has calmed me down as I feel I'm in great hands and will receive the best care possible. I'm very, very happy with my experience thus-far.
