In and out in 40 minutes, not crowded it was a weekday? But it worked really well. The lady at the lab getting the blood sample was extremely nice and deserves a raise. She's doing everything by herself in a pleasant way.

He listen to the issues I had. His nurse called me the next day, to make sure what I needed was taken care of. I appreciate that course of action. He referred to a specialist and I was able to make an appointment.

Great doctor.

Strongly considering changing to Monarch health care because of the simple service they provide seniors. For example testing for quality of the blood flow to the feet. Concentrating senior care. Also providing much better call service to Doctors & their support staff.

What they can do better is how to better social distancing. I felt very uncomfortable when I was doing my labs and there was people 1 foot a part of from one another. That was my only unsatisfied thing that happened to me that day. They gave me anxiety because there wasn't social distancing. Good night.

November 20, 2020
He didn't really listen to one of my concerns. Just brushed it off as if it was all in my head. Well I'm still in pain. Definitely wouldn't want to see him again.

I would tell my family to definitely check this place when they feel ill.
