This is a great dr and Sammi was a NP I saw who is also very good. My complaint is having to see another NP who whom I had never seen before. Sammi was out due to her little girl being sick. This woman began to change ALL my insulin pump settings without a second glance. I had already waited 45 min on Sammi and told them I would wait. I was just a few more Medicare dollars. Front Office was usually aloof and unconcerned. Seemed to depend on how you were dressed or how important you looked. In the 5 yrs I went there I saw Dr. Laura twice. Maybe because I was Medicare? However if I saw Dr Laura in the hall she still knew me by name and my history. I wonder if she is aware of the front office problems. I observe that a lot nowadays.

The office help IS substandard

I read a few reviews before trying to make an appointment to see the doctor. By nature, I am a skeptic. I thought that the complaints about the office personnel were just a onetime thing, but no, it is true. I do not know who is directing them to operate the way they do but it is a challenge to make an appointment to see this doctor, especially if you are a new patient. I understand some doctors are in demand that they book months out. My experience- I had the referral faxed to them, from my regular physician's office; they said that they never received it. I had it faxed again and was told that someone would contact me to make an appointment. I waited a couple of days and never heard from them. So I called back and was then notified that the referral was not signed by the doctor and that I would have to call my doctor to have it signed and resubmitted, Give me a break. (Why didn't anyone call me from that office to tell me this or better yet since they all work out of the same parent hospital, why couldn't they call the doctor and tell them that the form wasn't signed, would I have not heard from them if I hadn't made myself a nuisance and call back?) I have a low functioning thyroid and I need to be seen soon. I have NEVER in my 50+ years had this much trouble trying to get past first base to get an appointment. However, based on this first line response, from the representatives of this doctor's office. I am going to continue looking for another doctor. If this is the way the office personnel treat new clients, I am not sure I want to have any more dealings with this office. My search continues.
