Thank you so much for opening your clinic to Covid patients and taking such good care of me. Dr Heckman's nurse was just as kind as she is.
September 13, 2021
I appreciate being able to see test results on Bryan MyChart, but perhaps it would make more sense to release those AFTER the provider has had an opportunity to review and comment on the results. This may save some unnecessary patient worry!
