  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.

Disappointed.

This was the 3rd time I saw Dr. Trudell. Evidently, it was a bad day for her....I waited over 1 hour and then she abruptly saw me for 5 minutes. I shall not return.

Dr Trudell is a good doctor, but.............

There seems to be no organization in the office. My 84 yr old mother waited 3 months to see her. Was told they were running behind about an hour. After she saw the doctor, she waited 45 min for someone to draw her blood, then sent back to waiting room to wait for another 45 min. She was taken to the X ray room and waited almost an hour to get x rays taken. Patients in the waiting room were complaining and saying it's an average of a 3 hour wait every time they go. Prescriptions are never ready when they are suppose to be, reports are not ready on time. Half the staff went to lunch while my mom was left laying on a cold steel x ray table. My mom's appt was at 8:30am and didn't walk out of there until 1:35pm....5 HOURS. She was shaking from not having anything to eat. If this is the way they treat the elderly, the doctor either needs to stop over booking or get some competent workers in there.

Good Dr. Long wait

My last appointment was a long wait..it was over 2 hours. Calling in for help for a problem took over a week. It is a fiasco trying to get a call back from the Dr. Assistant. Dr. Keeps taking new patients and it shows...long wait just to get a call in. Dr. Trudell is an excellent Dr but the way her office is run is awful.
