I waited 60 mins past my appointment time and when I asked how much longer I was told another hour. I decided to leave. My time is way to valuable to wait 2 hours past my appointment time for a physician.

August 29, 2018

I arrived at Magee hospital at 7:47am. I made it to the 5th floor by 8am. My appt. was scheduled for 8:30am. I was roomed at 9am. Dr. March did not come in the room until 10am. I am not sure why I even stayed that long but I did. That is a horrible wait for a patient.

I have had excellent experiences.

August 28, 2018

I called to request an appointment 4 months ago. Yesterday was the first available appointment. My appt was at 11:20. I arrived at 11. At noon, I asked how much longer the wait would be and the receptionist didn't know and suggested that I was next. I was called back at 12:10. The intake nurse took 10 minutes and said the doctor would be right in. After 20 minutes, I went out to make sure they didn't forget about me. The receptionist said she had no idea where the doctor was or what her schedule was or when she would see me.... I was getting ready to leave at 12:45 when the doctor ran by the room and said she'd be right there. She came in after 12:50. I told her I had to leave at 1 because I had a one hour drive home and an important work phone call at 2. So after all that, we had a 15 minute appt. She gave me homework and said I was to see her in one month. The scheduling person came in and said her next available appt was not until mid NOVEMBER!!!!!!! I WILL NOT BE BACK! What a waste of 4 hours of my day for this appt.

A great, necessary practice. This provider and program has made a huge difference in reaching my health goals.

I feel so very fortunate that Vicki March is my physician (and friend), She is without a doubt, the very BEST physician I've ever had. She cares very much about her patients' mental and physical health.
