On the phone, I felt that Synovia didn't understand my problem (that I wanted a script for Paxlovid, due to a positive Covid test), and I'm not sure that she relayed my request correctly. There seemed to be a misunderstanding of antibacterial vs. Anti Viral.

I'm unsure of Brittney's exact position but she provides exceptional care to patients. When I was unable to afford my needed medications, she found a program that would assist in the cost. She obtained all necessary documents to get me approved through that program and regularly provided updates. I am appreciative of her time and love the staff here.

I had have difficulty getting RX refilled. Dont know if it was an issue with my pharmacy or the dr office? I had to call 3 times to get a refill. During once call, they told me they have decided to stop that hormone cream altogether? Which was not the case.
