Personal Madigan experience:
Our family has been assigned to Madigan since we came here and I think most folks get assigned here.
Never had any problems getting an appointment at Madigan – when I really needed it.
a. regular appointments are generally on time-the ladies are nice and helpful at the desk.
b. they have a pediatrics lab where they can draw blood. This is especially nice since the regular lab is usually packed and has longer waiting time.
c. immunizations have been a hit or miss lately in terms of waiting times. Things have been changing…certain vaccinations can be given without appointments others can’t…so ASK
a. ENT is hard to get an appointment for – well, like at other installations.
b. Family Practice: call early and you can get an appointment the same day. Docs are generally on time, staff is nice.
c. Facility is new and bright.
d. Pharmacy is p-a-c-k-e-d. I’ve had 200 ppl ahead of me…not fun. Recently, they have changed their system and
the waiting time was cut tremendously. Good time to pick up
meds are Saturday mornings or weekdays evening.
e. I know that a few patient/families are being contracted out to other family clinics. Not quite sure which ones.
My daughter as well as the other children have been accommodated in the Continuity Clinic. One doc for as long as either the doc or YOU are there. The physicians we had were very knowledgeable and for the first time in our military career the physicians actually helped me and reminded me of all the regular appointments that my daughter needed. Very nice and especially supportive.
I like Madigan and the facility. With all the deployments..they are strapped with physic
