    Very good

    I had an overwhelmingly positive experience with the provider and staff at this clinic despite being told less than positive news about my health. This was due to their professionalism kindness respect communication and ability to take the time to speak to me. This was most clearly a result not only of their commitment to patient care but their ability to truly spend the time to see me. No one was rushed. I spent at least an hour with the provider. Please give providers more time with patients!

    Of all the physicians I have ever visited (in my life) she listens more attentively and explains all treatment options whether or not they will work (even if she has ruled them out) very thorough
