I look at each patient as an individual and recognize that there is not a one-size-fits-all treatment. I take the time to make sure my patients understand their condition and treatment approach.

Very thorough and caring.

Unsure of where exactly the office was located within the larger complex (and how many additional forms I needed to fill out), I showed up almost 30 minutes early. After filling out a one-page medical history (along with the pre-filled forms I brought with me), I was quickly brought back. The staff was very nice and polite, and thoroughly diagnosed what I had and what my treatment options were. I ended up with a follow-up surgery scheduled one month ahead, prescriptions ordered at a local pharmacy, and was out by the time my actual appointment time was supposed to start.

Katy and staff were very friendly. I was in on time and given attention to all concerns I had. Each explained and what could and should be done. I will be back in the future for any follow ups.

The nurse assisting the doctor was very professional, proficient & efficient. All paid attention and checked all items concerned. PA called herself to talk to me about getting a blood test. Thank you and looking forward to the follow-up next steps.

Competent provider with good people skills. Took sufficient time to answer all of my questions.

Only issue was the length of wait time to see the doctor. Took 4 months.

My care provider was excellent. I would go back to see her in a heartbeat. My initial impression was not good based on the poor customer service skills of the front desk staff member who met me upon my arrival. I received no greeting other than a big sigh (tough to be at work, apparently). A clipboard was handed to me to complete forms with some mumbled instructions I couldn't understand. When leaving my appointment, both front desk staff seemed to be engaged in some office gossip that, while none of my business, does not paint a pretty picture of the business. I've worked with toxic staff before. You've got one at your front desk.
