Patient Comments (4)
in Napa, CA |
Doctor is great. Ran behind and nurse apologized for it and was wonderful. Front desk rude and condescending. She explained the paperwork incorrectly and then said I did not understand. Said only no show fee would charge and paperwork says they can charge me up to $800 if due. When I pointed this out she just said O.K. and asked if I was going to give her the card. Texting while I was doing my forms in front of her. Just plain rude!
in Yountville, CA |
The staff was very helpful to me - making several attempts with Walmart to initiate my prep solution prescription, etc. At the time of the colonoscopy, just prior to sedation, Dr. Bina talked with me, explained the procedure and answered my questions. She and her assistants made me feel comfortable and allayed my apprehension with their cheerful, calm and reassuring conduct.

The Dr. is fine, but her staff is lacking. Fasted for lab work 3 days in a row. Lab orders were not sent until I called the office twice. Waited now for 21 days for a procedure that "my insurance needs to approve." Called my insurance and they have not received a request. Hmmmm.

Dr Bina is a thoughtful and serious physician. I am, unfortunately, in and out of doctors' offices quite a bit over the last few years, and this ranks as one of the most positive experiences I have had...not only with Dr Bina, but with her office staff as well.
