I was disappointed in not being able to have my lab work/ blood drawn while there. And I was not told about it ahead so I had been fasting expecting to get that taken care of.

My experience was superlative in every way. The office staff was so helpful & friendly, Lynn Shields, my nurse practitioner, was one of the most knowledgeable, impressive medical professionals I have encountered anywhere (which includes large medical clinics in Dallas, Denver and Houston). I am so impressed with your high quality organization in Colorado City!

There are differences of opinion on the Covid-19 threat. Perhaps a single sheet of paper, copied from the Pueblo County Health Dept. on the current Covid-19 statistics and guidelines regarding Pueblo County; could be displayed at the front desk for patients to review and be kept current on developments. Thank you.

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.

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.
