Appointment went great! I'm just more concerned with billing as the billing has been messed up every appointment the last few years and the billing department are everything but helpful and guiding. This is our last chance with pella hospital. If this bill doesn't go to our address before showing up on my collections account we will be switching to Knoxville hospital.

Even though the health care provider was not my primary care provider, I was very pleased with the care that I received. I was given information that was helpful and all my questions were answered. Further treatment was arranged which I appreciated and feel this treatment will benefit my overall health.

They definitely care about people and they're also highly recommended and I like see them get a a pay raise. Alright. That's it.

Yes, I was talking to Dr. Elkin about my concerns with my leg being swollen and the fact that I go to the bathroom a lot and it sounded like she wasn't concerned that I go to the bathroom a lot 'cause December my bloodwork seemed okay. She didn't even maybe possibly order me blood work 'cause I felt like it was necessary or you know, talk to me more about me having to go to the bathroom a lot and I was concerned about it.

The front office staff member was very friendly at check-in, but not so much at check-out. Seemed like they just wanted me to leave ASAP

Yeah, they didn't give me both of my prescription for my high blood pressure. They only did one did it last time so they need to get that straight. Thanks.

The service provider was really excellent, but it took a long time to get a hold of somebody when I called. I spent over 5 minutes on the phone waiting to get somebody available.

Happy with my experience. They aren't familiar with my history because they aren't my regular provider. Thanks

Doctor is awesome. I have zero complaints about anything about the clinic itself. I would prefer that they did the... my son's Vyvanse prescription 3 months at a time, but every single month I have to call in and talk to a nurse and have them call it in and they're generally pretty speedy about it, but it's very inconvenient, especially if we're low on medicine. So his previous doctor would call in three months at a time and we only had to call every 3 months for that. Otherwise service is great. Thanks.

It wasn't my choice to change providers from Dr. Beatty to Dr. Elkin, but Dr. Elkin was very reassuring and I think it'll be wonderful for her to be my primary physician.

I was there I called this morning at 8 o'clock asking the doctor to call me back. I had three or four for calls from office people. They were very rude very unprofessional and it's now 5 o'clock and the doctor has not called me back. And the office manager said she would not. I'm in a lot of pain. I just needed to change a prescription. But they were very rude and unprofessional in the front office.
