Asked the same questions that the assistant had asked. Conducted a very brief exam but did not say anything about it. I assume everything was ok.

One of the most caring compassionate thorough and informative provider I've had in a number of years. She should be training others with her step by step way of informing the patient of what's going on and what she's doing. She is one in a million. I was blessed to have her as a provider.

very positive feeling after appt
December 11, 2020
Very informative about the procedure and thoughts about potential cause of my issues. Listened to me and showed concern.
December 10, 2020
the PA was very efficient and probably very competent but very cold and impersonal. But the most disturbing behavior was her response as she was preparing to leave. I asked if she had time to answer a question and she said No. She had another appt waiting. She told me to take a different probiotic, and ultrasound plus lab work. No reassurance, suggested problem or solution. I was already shaken by the severity of unknown symptoms and felt little support from her.

Although I do not have a problem or condition, the nurse-practitioner was caring and professional explaining the procedure to me.
