everything went really well
The electronic check in makes interaction with the office staff non-existent. It's a part of the process that as a patient I miss, the human interaction with the staff is almost as important as the doctor visit. The check in procedure is somewhat impersonal and you get the feeling of product being processed. Nevertheless, Renaissance family practice is a wonderful organization that I continue to use in spite of being a High Mark customer because of their excellent patient care.
