My care under Dr. Latimer's team was done with care and concerns for everyone involved health and safety. Initial vitals, x-rays, doctor consultation, and surgery scheduling were handled efficiently and with friendly courtesy. Upon checking MyChart later in the day I was able to read the summary of the visit and Dr. Latimer's notes. This was helpful in fully explaining and understanding my care.
