My appointment was for 10:15; I wasn't seen until 10:50. I stepped out to make sure they remembered I was waiting. If the doc was running behind, it would have been nice to have been told that. I was frustrated and disappointed.

I have had trouble with communication between Parkview Rheumatology and Labcorp for lab work. They say the systems are electronically linked and should be easily transmitted. Parkview staff say the fax didn't go through. I had three attempts to get the order to Labcorp. Finally, a staff member followed up on the request to ensure it went through. There seems to be a systemic issue here.

Nothing! They did a perfect job! They listened to me the last visit and they set up a treatment plan including physical therapy. I have improved greatly following their plan. I highly recommend Dr. Chavda and her staff. I even discussed with another physician, the quality of care from Dr. Chavda's office.

If I am going to be waiting over an hour for the doctor to see me while I'm sitting in an examination room, someone should at least come in and say they are sorry, but unforseen circumstances are causing a delay.

I was a new patient and I was asked about all my symptoms by the MA then I was asked the identical questions by an intern by the time I saw the Dr she didn't ask me any questions. I left not understanding what my diagnosis was based on and not comfortable with her plan of care. I have left messages all week to speak to someone to try to understand my 1st and only visit. No one has returned my call.

My appointment was at 11:00. I didn't get in to see the doctor until 12:15. There is a note on her receptions desk said, if you are late... the patient is 5 minutes late. They have to reschedule. How about the doctor seeing you on your appointed time or within 15/20 minutes?

The exam room door should've been closed when the doctor, resident and MA came into the room. It was difficult to hear them with all the noise from the front desk area

During my last two visits the provider didn't seem to listen and disregarded what I had to say or concerned about. Her notes from last visit were inaccurate, she forgot she made med changes and indicated she didn't have specific records I indicating led to her med change. Another individual was able to find the records yet she wasn't validating or empathetic to insinuating I was wrong.

They have messed up my appointments the last three times, and I'm not very happy with that. I show up on my appointment time is and they tell me it's not til the next day when I get a reminder, in a text message telling me when it is and they still say no that wasn't right now. They've done this to me before and I don't like it.

The hour and a half wait for the provider was a little off putting and then feeling a little bit rushed because I had to leave and I'm sure there's other people who were also waiting an hour and a half. (INAUDIBLE, this was problematic.

Very difficult and frustrating to try and understand medical professionals when they wear masks. Clear face shields might be a better alternative when providers have a strong accent so patients can see their mouth for visual cues

It took four months to get into see this dr. She had my primary run many many tests. She already decided it was not what was referred for before she even saw me. I was afforded a visit finally, but felt unheard and unconcerned for my issues. Felt rushed and not able to explain my symptoms, health history and medications I was already subscribed that did not work. What little info I was given could have easily been put in a note to my dr. I left feeling hopeless and unsure what my next steps should be.

I did not feel the Provider was hearing my concerns. And office staff ordered every single medication on my file, when several of them have been discontinued for a very long time. This caused me to have to call the express mail order pharmacy long wait times to get them removed.

1.5 hours behind schedule. Then,had the oddity to look at her watch before we felt comfortable with what little information that was provided. The only thing I know for sure,is i left knowing i had a bunch more pills to take. This may not be a big deal to her,but it certainly Is to me

I have an appointment set for 1 o'clock. I got there at 12:40. Full out my paperwork as taken back right away. I sat in the in the room, waiting for the doctor to come in for about an hour. Maybe longer. The doctor came in to visit was extremely short. Nothing was resolved, and the and I paid $60 for that visit. That's not a good, good representation. All your paperwork, says it it we're 1 minute or 2 minutes late. You're going to cancel our appointment. We have to reschedule that. The doctor can wait

The doctor was great. The girl, whoever does the prescription refills or sends in the prescriptions did not pay attention when I told her, who the, who my drug program was. She sent it to the wrong drug program, and I had to deal with it from there.

The doctor wanted a full blood screen done prior to my visit - done, appt scheduled (was about 2 months out). Prior to that, got a call the she would not be in the office that day, had to re-schedule another 2 months or so out. Then the week before that appt was due I got a call - same thing, doctor would not be in the office that day, but there were 2 openings the morning of the call, at 9:15 or 10:45. Since the call came at just after 8:30 there was no way I could make a 9:15 so took the later one, barely made it. As it turned out, my blood work had been ok - no severe rheumatoid arthritis- my hands were checked briefly, heart listened to, told to come back in a year. I made an appt but do not think I will be keeping it. Poor management on the doctor's part, in my opinion, when so many appts have to be re-scheduled.

The main thing I have problems with is once I filled out my paperwork, and got into the room. I still waited more than an hour before the doctor came in. The wait was a little bit too long for me. I had other things that needed to be done.

Hmmm....maybe at the end, the Dr. should communicate with the front desk about what the next steps were to be. The front desk lady had to catch me on the way out to see if I needed to schedule my next appt.

Has nothing to do with visit with doctor....has to do with restroom down the hall...the toilet seat was so low I could not get up off it without help...at first I thought I had entered a children's bathroom...seat was at least 3 inches below norm...a handicapped bathroom should be provided or at least a handicapped toilet as a choice.

I had called ahead to make sure they had my records and they said yes. Turns out they did not have my dexa scan and I saw in a very warm exam room for an hour while they tried to get it from the provider. They ultimately could not get it. Finally the doctor saw me. She was fine. The staff was apologetic and nice but having to wait that long was not ideal.

I was nervous since I hadn't met Dr Chavda in person yet, just via telephone and video, but I loved her. She is so kind and caring and didn't brush off my complaints about thumb pain and hair loss due to methotrexate. Her staff is so friendly and helpful. I couldn't be more pleased with how things went yesterday. I feel hopeful again that my hands are going to improve.

I would love to leave positive feedback, but they never called to do my appointment over the phone. So I never got to have my appointment. That's why I gave negative feedback, but I actually love this doctor's office and their staff. So there's that.
