I thought the experience at the 3rd Street Surgery Center went really well. The staff was fantastic. Thank you.

The PIH patient record form is poorly formatted and ignores my demographic - the elderly. This survey does not account for patient's choice of intervention, eg. consultation seeking, and seems slanted toward on-going patient-practitioner relationships such as primary care.

Unfortunately, my first appointment for a colonoscopy was cancelled because the machine broke; the procedure had to be rescheduled.

I wanted to say that I was treated with great respect during my office. Visit. However, when I did call initially, to make a insurance, or when I thought I had insurance. I was treated poorly and I just felt like the receptionist was being a little rude with my answer and her response into my question and, but everyone else treated me fairly and kind during my visit.

Dr. Heartfield is an excellent gastroenterologist. A satisfied patient. He was referred by (name removed) who is also an excellent general practitioner. Both excellent doctors in their medical field.

Yes, I answered the first question correctly, you know, I probably either enter 3 or 4 not 1 the doctor seem fine the only problem is is it, is it it was a foot a colonoscopy, and I got the instructions in the mail, 2 days after I actually had the procedure done other than that, everything was fine.

This was my 1st time meeting Dr Heartfield. When i walked in the facility, I got good vibes. I didnt feel nervous. My intuition was correct. He was courteous and receptive to my questions and concerns. He was detailed on the process. Overrall, It was a good office visit.

Everything was great, Dr. Heartfield was great. [PHI removed] was very helpful in the office. My only wish was I never received any paperwork, but any instructions, I [PHI removed] kind of called the pharmacy that I never had any like written paperwork, which I kind of would have liked. I just went off the bottle for the prescription and off the voice. Message that [name removed] left me about what time to be at the hospital, but I thought the doctor was going to send me something, which I never received. Other than that, everything was great. Thank you.

Susan Dr. Heartfield is wonderful. This is [removed PHI]. He's been my doctor for quite a while, but I must say if you want to ask you for questions. Don't do it at dinner time, because I'm making dinner right now, and there's no way that I could stop this program. So, thanks very much. Bye. Bye.

Excellent care. Very attentive and very warm and caring team. And the office people very nice. And Dr. Heartfield is very handsome.

Though the decision to surgically remove the growth was made at this appointment, I wish a numbing cream had been used prior to lidocaine injection, the pain was horrendous and had me shaking, cursing too, which may have offended the assistant per Dr. Heartfield, she is very nice, but pain like that could have generated far worse expletives directed not at myself but at the source of the pain. I had previously liked this Dr. and the staff here, I left feeling disrespected and the procedure was hurried with out time for applying a numbing cream. The pain was intense.

The staff was unorganized and failed to send request lab work
