    All of my experiences were good.

  • Apr 30, 2019

    Very good until recently. Yesterday drove to the new waterfront facility from our home on the Olympic Peninsula. Allowed almost two hours prior to my appointment for blood draw and EKG like always. Place was in disarray attempting to get the kinks out but a fire drill screwed everything up. Had to go to appointment without EKG and not enough time for the Dr to get blood results. Dr, of course, had little to say given he had no data to reference. I had an eight our round trip for virtually nothing and you’re still going to charge me. Doesn’t seem quite fair does it!
