Everything was fine, I can't think of anything that could have been done better.

Put the paper health check form online. 3 pages of conditions was too much to check off on paper. If it were online on my Portal, I could have completed the forms before I arrived at the office.

I think the doctors and Clinics could spend more time on studying. The people's records, or patient records before they have their appointment.
