We are extremely happy with our doctors and the entire staff at the University of Utah Centerville Clinic.

November 21, 2013

Doctor Y apologized for being so far behind, saying he had two emergencies come up. I realize those things happen. He seemed quite distracted and trying to "get his head" into my appointment. I assumed the emergencies were negative and had an effect on him. Also, for some reason, my labs were not available for Dr Y to use during my appointment and that also seemed to throw him off.

Dr. Yencheck and I are new to each other. We are still trying to establish tht "connection" between us. It is too soon to tell whether he is to be recommended to anyone by me.
