My husband has Alzheimer's, so I have to do all the paperwork for him. I had forgotten to bring his wallet with his insurance card and picture ID. The registration staff were very understanding, and did not make a big issue of it at all, which I appreciated.

Had a letter from another doctor that had been sent to the office. Nurse took the time to find the letter and make sure that Dr. Hanka had seen it before he came in to see us.
