The Tele Health function did not work correctly. I was in the waiting room virtual waiting room for an extended period of time. My doctor ended up having to call me on my cellphone because the doxy me apple communication whatever it's called never connected us through. So that's a negative but I love Dr Rodina and I've had her in the past and she's fabulous.

This doctor is one of my favorites. Always working hard to find a solution to any problem you have, such as adjustment to a new medicine or to treat a new pain. We always leave her office feeling she is interested in solving our problem and that she really cares about her patients.

Well, I've had a very difficult experience with the telephone trying to reach the doctor. The system is broken. And then part 2 I had a little trouble with the office staff getting the right simple information. Like did you send in this request? Yes, but then I went to the lab. They said no it wasn't in yet that couple of those things. It wasn't organized well enough. But your telephone system is. Makes me not wanna I dread calling because of your system. Please change it, please fix it a lot of your patients need it. Thank you.
