Do away with the face masks The CDC has confirmed that masks unless N95 do not protect against The COVID Virus

Can't think of anything for improvement at this time. The whole appointment was very good from the initial greeting to the medical assistant to Lynn Shields doing a very good evaluation and asking a lot of good questions and addressing any questions i had. She seems very up on new medical tests, and had some very good tips for healthier living. I am glad I have her for a health care provider. The whole staff is very attentive and seem to genuinely care about patient care. Thank you all very much.

I'm frustrated by the government mandates that you follow as far as covid rather than use common sense, guidelines as far as masks and vaccines, for both patients as well as your staff. I have good friends that are doctors and it's just ridiculous. I think that you required them to become vaccinated on a, with a vaccine that is not scientifically proven. It may help out a little bit but I think the government over reach went way beyond the balance it should've and for you to follow suit with following their guidelines, I was not excited about. But your customer service is great and I really appreciate the local Personnel that have great customer service here in this area.

You can't fix perfect. The entire office staff and Physician work in unison. Everyone functions together effortlessly. In my experience it is difficult to find a medical office that operates so smoothly. The staff is very informative. The Physician is very knowledgeable and experienced. Doctor Lynn Shields' office is the perfect example on how a medical office should be operated. I've witnessed other patients leaving they're medical appointments very satisfied. I would highly recommend Dr. Lynn Shields' medical services to everyone that wants or needs results to a path "to" or "back to" good health. She is passionate about her work. Me and my family are included in the lucky ones to be under her watch and care. I can't keep her hard and dedicated work a secret anymore. There are too many other of her patients that feel the same way.

Billing is always an issue I get bills for labs or things like cologard even though I give my insurance at time of service / dr. visit. Always told I need to call billing not my local office and no one answers at main office for billing. I would appreciate if the local office handled with billing.

The roadway entrance leading up to the clinic has an uneven area that can cause under carriage damage to vehicles if a driver is not careful. Likely the clinic is not responsible for repairing this but it is a hazard IMO.

This office that we're talking about, they are excellent. I'm an RN and I cannot think of 1 single thing that they do wrong. They just are up in excellence about everything. Her staff, her self. She spent like 2 hours with me on a yearly thing. I mean, it is just unbelievable and I'm glad I found her. Thank you.

At least two lab values came back from LabCorp as "unable to perform" ... When this occurs, what do I do? Get the blood draw repeated? Overall I remain extremely satisfied with the staff at your Colorado City clinic and continue to go there because of the medical care I receive there from the staff and especially FNP Shields. You and I are lucky to have her and her team. Thank you.
