Menance. BE CAUTIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 11/22/2008

Dr.Peterson is a great progrssive Dr. Dr.C Waymack denied care & overlooked my diagnoses of a stroke at the age of 30 after putting me on the highest dose of birth control on the market. She called it a TIA & never worked it up. 5 yrs later I threw another clot that caused a heart attack. She is only good for ears, nose & throat diagnosis. She is not an advocate for a pt. unless she holds no judgement or predisposed dispositions. She is a menance to the general population.Unless a simple case. V Armstrong more

Consistent Excellent Service from All 11/18/2008

I've been a patient of Dr. Waymack for 20 years. I highly recommend her. Her medical knowledge is wide and deep. She keeps current on issues in medicine and uses wise judgment in recommending courses of treatment. She is especially great at being non-judgmental, hearing my concerns, and respecting my point of view. All the doctors at this clinic have responded quickly to after-hours emergencies I've had, and I've never had any problems whatsoever with the staff or billing services there. more

Good clinic 5/18/2007

I'm shocked at the last review, I feel that I've had great medical information from clinic, specifically Dr. Mar. We've stayed at the clinic because of him,even when it was out of our way. Our whole family (Son, Husband and myself) utilize his services. Not common today to find a Dr. who will take care of the entire family, including delivering our son. Very sorry to hear the other reviewer didn't have the same luck we did. Dr. Mar is very practical which may have been perceeved as sarcasim. We had cats during our pregnancy and never advised not to be around them...exact opposit actually as he recognized they we're comforting for me. The only precaution he offered was not to clean the litter box (that wasn't hard one to give up). I do agree that the other Dr's there are great too...I like the general atmosphere of the clinic...we're not just Dr. Mar's patients we're everyones. more

A couple good doctors, terrible front desk 8/31/2006

I have have been going to this clinic for about 12 years, even before they were in their current location. Dr. Mitch Peterson and Dr. Carol Waymack are both excellent physicians. I find that Dr. Peterson is a great problem solver. For years, I had a back problem that seemed random and he was the first doctor who said it might be, of all things, indigestion! And he turned out to be right. All that physical therapy another doctor recommended was such a waste! Dr. Waymack is very no-nonsense and efficient, although she can be a little irritable if she thinks you've looked up anything on the internet. If you have done any research, it helps to let her know what the source is, like the NIH or the Harvard Medical site. She'll still be a little put out, but she can't really argue with top-notch sources.Other than that, I find her very easy to talk to and she's a reassuring kind of person. I would avoid Dr. Mar. I've seen him twice and both times, he was sarcastic and condescending. And he gave me wrong info one of the times, telling me that because I was pregnant, I couldn't pet my cat because even cat dander could give me toxoplasmosis, which is totally untrue. I think he uses sarcasm to be funny, but who wants that when you're not feeling well? And when I asked questions, he answered them in a way that made me feel small and silly for asking. The nurses at this clinic have been wonderful, especially with my 2-year-old son. I must say though that even though I stick with this clinic because they have 2 good doctors and years-worth of my medical records, the front desk staff is the worst I've EVER seen. I keep hoping it'll get better, but it just doesn't. It was great years ago, in their old location, but for the last 8 years, I've had nothing but bad experiences. First, when you call, you rarely get straight through. You almost always get a recording saying all their schedulers are busy and you ahve to wait. Second, when I've had to have stuff faxed to other doctors, they've never done it the first time I ask. I usually have to check again and then maybe they do it. One time, I actually got to the specialist and they STILL hadn't faxed my records. I almost missed being able to see the specialist at all while I waited for the fax. If you leave a message for a doctor, it often doesn't get relayed. If they tell you they will call you "right back," make sure you ask how long it will be. I've gotten called back as much as two days later. Once, when I had a question for my doctor, she didn't call me for 2 weeks! When she called, she said that the note she got indicated that I had "just" called. I was pretty angry that not only did they forget about me, but then they gave the doctor the idea that the question was recent. And finally, when you arrive for your appointment, they often seem resentful of the interruption of their private conversations. It's surprising to me that when they have such good nurses and mostly good doctors, that they can't manage to have a friendly, efficient, helpful front desk. It's too bad. Their best doctor, Dr. Katie O'Farrell just left the practice to go back to school so they should be getting a new doctor to replace her. I hope they make a better choice than they did with Dr. Mar. more
