    The only complaint I have about this visit is that after my physician left the room, he told me that someone would come in and draw blood. I waited 20 minutes and finally I went out into the hall as asked an assistant how much longer I would have to wait. Right after that someone came in to draw by blood. I think they forgot I was in there.

    very good

    the doctor told me to go get blood taken at the lab on the first floor in the next couple of weeks because I was not fasting that day. I went the following week and the lab did not have an order for my blood draw. they tried to reach the doctor but we're told it would be a couple hours. the doctor office was supposed to call me once they had submitted the order. five days later I still have not received a call.
