The doctor seemed to spend a really short time with me, perhaps 10 minutes. I have a contact allergy to ingredients in many products including soaps and hand sanitizers. The problems I have and the ingredients I need to avoid are detailed in my medical record. The doctor used the hand sanitizer on the counter just before she moved to examine my hand. I was concerned that I needed to remind her to put on gloves before touching my skin. I reminded the doctor as to why I needed her to wear gloves as well. I don't know what kind of a day she was having, but there was a bit of an eye roll before she complied. After the doctor examined my hand arrangements for a referral were made promptly. There was no long wait to be taken to an exam room or to see the doctor. The visit went as it should have. All clinic staff treated me respectfully. I have no other concerns.

My care provider is very good but Kadlec/Providence management do not allow any of their Doctors to have more then 15 minute appointments. This is not enough time for the Doctors to really know their patients. As a patient I feel like you treat us as a number not a human being with medical problems.
100

12/31/2019
Nothing to add, very pleased.

Dr. Charron has always impressed me as being very professional and thorough during my visits. She makes a point of being certain any matter concerning my health is addressed and questions are answered at the time of my visits. Dr. Charron assistant, I believe her name is Lorena, is also very courteous and attentive to my needs. Although it's evident that Dr. Charron is seeing many patients in a days time, she is always very cordial, which is much appreciated.

I was given a paper to sign which basically said I couldn't ask any questions. I don't like that. I didn't even get undressed. I was not given a breast check (which they don't do at a mamogram either.)

09/25/2019
The nurse told me that I had 15 minutes with the doctor and that the doctor may be able to answer all my health concerns. I do not visit the doctor unless I need to so when I go in I'm taking time off work. my time is just as important as their time. I was very disappointed that I waited for three weeks to have my concerns met and then it felt like they weren't met. I felt like the visit was rushed. was told if the symptoms didn't get better I need you to come back in 2 weeks. I felt that more could have been done at the visit if there was more time and I wouldn't have to come back in two weeks. My issues would have been solved in the one appointment that I set up.

09/17/2019
talk about prescription medication would possibly include going through my list of meds briefly and asking if I'm still taking them but I answered no because it wasn't really a discussion.

09/17/2019
I got a quick appointment and the doctor took care of the spots on my head. I was glad she didn't send me to a specialist for something she could do in her office.

09/15/2019
It took almost 3 weeks before the doctor could see me ...what are my options when the doctor is not available? Also, it seems they do not spend enough time taking to me .....
82.8

09/11/2019
Provider seemed not as interested in my exam as last year. However, I have full confidence in her as a provider.
100

09/11/2019
I waited 6 MONTHS to get an appointment with a new provider. I am so happy and it was worth the wait. Dr. Charron is kind, caring and helps you to feel at ease during the appointment. I hope this is the last time I have to look for a PCP. That being said, I think it is hard to believe in an area this size that the wait time for a new Primary Care Provider is incredibly long. Certainly this is not the providers issue. It is pervasive no matter who you want to see in the Kadlec system.
