The care provider informed me of my results from my tests and told me in detail my next steps moving forward. She listened to my concerns and answered questions that I had. She informed me of courses of actions that would be taken to help treat me and was very helpful and truly made it a pleasant experience.

Karissa is a very good care giver. Her hands are tied just as much as any others. I am not happy with the medical care provided in today's world. I need to sit down, hear about my lab results, ask questions, learn about my insulin pump and have access to hands on changes for learning when this is so new. That is not available under these conditions.

This was my first visit, but so far, so good! I felt that she listened to my issues and recommended a lot of different bloodwork to get to the bottom of my issue.

Karissa is the best nurse P I have ever had. She listens and understands a patients' needs and will fight for their care to the best of her ability. She listens and shares by responding in a kind yet educated way. There is no more to say.

I have been coming to this office for a couple of years now. there is nothing that is over the top special about the care I receive but I have yet to have a horrible experience to move me elsewhere. I will say the past 2 times I have come in my provider has open mouth yawned while I was speaking to her in regards to mybhealth and questions. this may seem like a small thing and in the grand scheme of things it is. however it makes me feel like she is not listening to what I am saying.
