My wife and I received Covid-19 testing promptly when we arrived for our outdoor testing. Dr. Slone called me with my results the very next day for which I am very grateful. Someone also called my wife with her results that day. Thank you to all involved! Arnemann Grender

Waited 2 months for an appointment, waited two hours in the waiting room, he was supposed to call in a prescription to my pharmacy. Three hours later, still hadn’t contacted the pharmacist. Went to the office to get prescription and was told that they had been closed for an hour.
