WakeMed Patient - January 2020

From walking in to register the customer service was excellent and the nurse that did my vitals was very polite and kind. This was my first time seeing Dr. Tanner as Dr. [ ] my PCP was on vacation. I would see him again if Dr. Phifer wasn''t available. I felt very comfortable with him and my diagnosis.
