The August To-Do List »
There's still one month of summer left. Before those lazy, hazy days come to an end, use our get-things-done list to make the most of this fleeting season in the sun.
Get ready for back to school while you have the time to do it. From shopping and haircuts to dentists and auto repairs.
It's not the worst but it's also not the greatest. They are great with getting you in for sick visits the same day you call, and stay open until 7 pm. The nurses are mostly friendly and they have some really great doctors. They are on top of the referals. Also, I like that they have an after hours call in center so you can speak to a nurse in the middle of the night if you need to. A few things I don't like: I've been going there for 11 years, and had 2 appointment cards with the date/time for my daughters appointment, and when I took my daughter in they told me that she didn't have an appointment that day, and refused to see her, despite my having both cards to prove she did in fact have the appointment. Sick visits can take a long time... I've been in there for 3 hours before... so the ER may actually be just as long or faster. Also, they take people when they want. My infant son had a sick visit today, and I was waiting for 20 minutes in the sick room when another mother came with her preschool aged daughter who was up running around (so she wasn't that sick), and an hour and a half later I heard her in the hall complaining how she had to feed her daughter and didn't know it would take so long, so despite her coming in 20 minutes after me (and we were both on a sick visit) they told me they were taking her before me. I left and took my son to the Reading Hospital ER pediatric department and was out in an hour. There are a couple of doctors there who I refuse to see because they are rude and have horrible manners.
