Health Center: what’s up, Doc? Reply

By Holly Feola & John Maclean – 1851 Staff

Recently, some students have questioned the timeliness and thoroughness of health professionals in the Health Services office.

I think Health Services should open 10 minutes before their official hours to prevent patient waiting. Once, I arrived at Health Services at 8:20 a.m. No lights were on and there was no one there, despite center’s 8:30 to 4:30 hours. At 8:30 a man unlocked the door. Then, I waited five minutes for a nurse to check me. By opening a few minutes ear- lier, I would’ve been able to have my appointment when scheduled, rather than five minutes later.
