Maybe a coat hook to hang your coat while weighing in. it's either hand it to someone or lay it on the floor.

From the welcome by Diane and Lindsay, through the initial stats with Andi, and time spent with Lynn Shields, I feel that this is the best care I have had in many years. I appreciate the recognition of who I am, and the kind and caring attitudes of all of the staff. Andi and Lynne have extensive nursing backgrounds and it shows. The diagnostics are thorough and there is plenty of time for individual questions. Referrals to other practitioners have been excellent.

Nothing - response was quick and greatly appreciated. Even received a follow up phone call clarifying how best to proceed after receiving a test result. Very pleased and grateful.

I can't think of a thing. The visit was extremely pleasant, the reception and medical staff were very friendly and helpful. I felt very comfortable and that my concerns were listened to and given serious consideration.
October 15, 2020
I've pondered this for over a minute and cannot think of a single thing that is important enough to mention... For you, I think that is a good thing. I actually look forward to seeing the people who staff this clinic. I really do... I think they are a walking positive representation of the best of the Parkview organization.OK?
October 14, 2020
Nothing I can think of. Lynn always does a great job!!! I absolutely appreciate her personality and excellent investigative skills!
October 14, 2020
This visit was fine. I had difficulty getting in to see her as no staff realized she agreed to accept me as a patient.
October 13, 2020
That office is wonderful everyone that works there treats me very nice. And I almost feel like a friend. Only thing I wish you could have blood drawn any day of the week. Other than that everything was perfect.
October 02, 2020

From reception with Lindsay, to screening with Andi, and my session with Lynn, everyone is so professional, friendly, thorough, and caring. This is a great team that makes one feel confident about healthcare today.
August 04, 2020
Dr. Lynn was great but the office had referred me to town and they treated me terrible in town, and I ended up having to come back and see Dr. Lynn and then go back to get x-rays when I should have had X-rays the first time around. Thank you. Bye.
July 31, 2020
I appreciate how everyone listens and doesnot assume my condition beforehand
July 29, 2020

June 18, 2020
I think that the experience with that was very good. We are very pleased to have visited with Lynn and we were very happy the way we were treated and I would appreciate sending anybody over there. Thank you.
June 17, 2020
Very, very nice people
June 16, 2020
I would like to have a hard copy of my blood test results. My printer no longer works and I have a hard time accessing the portal. It keeps telling me there is no such patient listed. At my age arguing with it is a pain in the neck. I plan to call the clinic and ask for a hard copy.
June 04, 2020
Not providers fault, but I cannot breathe thru mask but was required to wear it. May delay all further medical visits until this requirement is lifted. At this time, I am in a very low incident area and actively curtail my activity and exposure to other people. So I am not a carrier and would prefer to make my own decision about my risk factor.
June 02, 2020
I was extreemly pleased with the way everything was handled, especially with the current health concern.
May 26, 2020
Every question was listened to and answered
May 20, 2020
I think it was unnecessary to not allow parents in the building or in the room because of covid-19. I think it's carried away.
May 12, 2020
It will be much better when we can again visit our providers in person but under the present conditions they are doing an exceptional job. Great job Lynn Shields! ! !
April 29, 2020
The appointment was very helpful for me

I seek out Lynn's advise every single time because she is amazingly awesome. Thank you.
