online registration became annoying, as I received multiple messages despite having completed my pre-registration.
Jun 3, 2021
Again, the staff was amazing at staying in contact with me and getting me double-booked on a fully booked day. I again stress how grateful I am that you guys were able to doublebook me on a fully booked day, so I didn't have to wait 2 weeks after my injury to be seen.
Jun 3, 2021
Very quick and painless. Staff was very considerate and welcoming.

I was booked an appointment approx within the hour of calling and asking to be seen by a doctor or PA. I do not receive that attention through St Jude Heritage Family Practice, therefore I'm considering leaving them and looking for a general practitioner provider within this group. I'm impressed.
